    One of those moments where you wish it was dark! Would likely see a flash every ~4 seconds or so going by Blitzortung.

    Heard rather loud thunder. 

    Meanwhile in my back garden.

    Lots of thunder, heavy rain, sounds like and MCs. Just a quite constant rumble.

    Storms setting up in France as this one seemingly is slinking away and dying down the further West in Kent you go.

    Suns back, it gave me a start though, woke up with a rumble wondering if it was that rocket people were on about last night.

    That was quite an unexpected noisy wake up call here in Folkestone. Slightly unusual in that we had a good 15 minutes of constant thunder from 7:50 onwards. Would have been far better in the dark as I really couldn't see a great deal of lightning.

    Was very lively for a while, it’d been rumbling very distantly on and off from around 6am but then changed to constant rumbling from the south/SW.

    Quite a fast moving storm as it’s already moved away. 

    Screen grab of the radar as it went passed:

    Looks like a few more discrete cells are firing in the channel

    Following the rain firing up just North of that Portugal rain.

    Great call on the morning action in Kent @staplehurst - the models seemed to be really unsure about whether anything would happen!

    Time to charge those camera batteries in case I end up in Kent later!

    Typical haha, as soon as I get home from the beach I hear more elevated thunder just offshore!

    Morning 🙂

    Certainly a good chance of a few thunderstorms in the far south east during the evening time, some strong thunderstorms possibly develop over France.

    Here's the airmass satellite this morning, you can see the thundery developments to our south..

    58uawi.thumb.gif.b3fda1cca281629bf6a46d5097d5ba8f.gif

    Could be some more purple colours appearing in some of those thunderstorm cells moving across and out of France this evening, also over Belgium with quite large hail possible in a few of those, a small chance of this in any isolated ones that may manage to get to the far southeast of England this evening, something to keep a close watch on.. no guarantees ofcourse and though unlikely it could all be to our southeast with limited or no thundery activity over the far southeast.

    The Arome..

    Something that was being suggested yesterday by the models and looks like the ukv above shows it too, which @Mr Frost has also shown is a second possibly organised system moving northnortheast out of France during the early hours of tomorrow, heavy showery rain/possible cluster of thunderstorms with suggestions of it coming out of France slightly west of the preceding thunderstorms this evening, still probably moving in a mostly northnortheast direction.

    either way looks to be frontal rain later in the far east by the morning tomorrow and clears away.

    So far they are just missing you and me on the coast, I'm still hearing a few distant rumbles.

    Even just hearing the elevated thunder is nice! A decent start to the season for us I would say 🙂

    Yup! Lets hope its a good year for them, Eastbourne missed out on a few  that skimmed Bexhill and Hasting last year if I remember rightly?

    I seem to recall most of our activity coming from that hot and humid stretch between the 7th and the 12th August. Most of it was offshore but I think we had one night with a multicell cluster hitting the coast?

    I think your probably right. There was one night where we had some quite ferocious Rain hitting with the storm. It was about 9.30-10ish in the night, just when I was going to bed. Typical! 
    Quite a Juicy Cell just missing you right now I see.

    If only this was further west eh. North Sea is going berserk!

    Looks like a hail spike was visible on the radar from earlier also.

    Yes, noticed that! I'm wondering if the initial area of instability is slightly higher than originally forecast? Could bode well for later perhaps...

    Nice to see some activity, cell just 20miles offshore here on Suffolk coast earlier gives me some hope for this evening/tonight.

    I would still say as others have said a good deal of this will end up in the North Sea should things develop later, I would want to see the Western extent of the plume engage around Brighton ( if the steering winds and trajectory of the plume are similar to this morning ).

    This would give East Sussex, the whole of Kent along with Eastern Essex and coastal Suffolk a good chance.

    Will be optimistic in watching today, have a good one!

    Looks like a small multicell cluster (Not really an MCS) has developed.

    I'd say the instability zone is pretty visible on radar currently. 

    The further west from SE Kent they get, the quicker they collapse so Dover/Folkestone being main target zones for those later.
