    We currently have a shower developing to our south heading towards east Yorkshire. Is there anything likely to develop further north tonight or is the angle of attack forecast to change.

    Well this lot in the distance has been generating from just east of Nottingham for 2 hours now. Everything in between has just evaporated away.

    Funnel spotted!! Just spotted by me 10 mins ago from South Bristol. Had to use my phone to snap some pictures! It was from a cell north east to me. This is a first time for me!20210606_190939.thumb.jpg.3723a143475a53d4aea3f2d4b17cc39c.jpg20210606_190945.thumb.jpg.9f885b2a6a263e8d97fa29072b233c7c.jpg20210606_190940.thumb.jpg.1a958e8f00c1cc0b07bb74245fec3d14.jpg20210606_190908.thumb.jpg.bc543e7e4a2f1c8a51a130a5473db38d.jpg

    Still yet to have a storm here this year in Wellingborough, missed them by several miles in every direction! Any chance of this changing in the next couple days, i would’ve thought with how warm and humid it’s felt for a week that surely it’d give something

    I had a look at the BBC forecast for the week ahead on Country File. Parts of Central and Eastern England may get a  storm or two tomorrow after which the weather in England will settle down to dry, cloudy and close until the weekend (or after).

    Morning everyone. 😊

    I don’t know how well this is going to show up in this photo, but there looks to be some pretty strong convection starting to brew up over the Warrington/Runcorn area. ☁️🌩

    I’ve got to be honest… I’m certainly not expecting anything to go bang… But hey… It’s still nice to see. 😊👍🏻

    Day 1 Convective Outlook

    VALID 06:00 UTC Mon 07 Jun 2021 - 05:59 UTC Tue 08 Jun 2021

    ISSUED 06:25 UTC Mon 07 Jun 2021

    ISSUED BY: Dan

    Subtle troughing aloft will slide gradually northeastwards across the UK/Ireland on Monday. Diurnal heating will yield 300-500 J/kg CAPE, primarily across central/eastern England where higher surface temperature and dewpoints are expected. Scattered showers are likely to develop, particularly aided by low-level convergence (sea breeze) and orographic forcing (Pennines, North York Moors etc). Convection may be a little restricted in overall depth, and this will limit the potential for lightning - however, any deep convection that can grow tall enough to utilise the slightly stronger mid-level flow could last a little longer, and given substantial veering of winds with height near sea breeze convergence in eastern England any cells that cross this boundary (i.e. moving towards the coast/offshore) could exhibit some short-lived low-level rotation. Conditions overall are a bit marginal for much in the way of lightning, but a low-end SLGT (25-30% chance) has been introduced where the best potential of some sporadic lightning is considered.

    Forecasting thunderstorms and severe convective weather across the British Isles and Ireland for up to the next 5 days.

    Showers developed over Lincoln yesterday, a couple of which were heavy, but I didn't hear any thunder.  There were some more showers around 7am, when I woke up with intense cramp in my right calf.  It's been sunny since 9am but there's more convection going up now, so I'll be keeping an ear out for thunder this afternoon.

    Nice little storm just passed overhead, a bit east of York - the same one that passed over Castleford earlier. Constant rumbling and some CC visible for about half an hour.

    Thunder over Lincoln, I heard a couple of distant rumbles from a cell to the west at around 12:30, and another cell has come much closer in the past 15 minutes giving some quite loud rumbles.  I haven't seen any lightning yet, though, it must be mainly cloud to cloud lightning.

    North Yorkshire seems to have become the uk equivalent of the great plains over the last couple years.  I'm not jealous.

    Hull is getting a very haily looking radar signature now too

    This forum (and weather) is my escape from school life, I will always be keen for a storm hate them for the first 5 minutes then get my phone and Camera out, my favourite memory was 2019,having missed out on a storm earlier I tracked a small storm coming up from France my first real storm tracking, it was pretty unexpected but as it got closer it continued and I saw it had hit Eastbourne and was keeping its strength even getting bigger and I could see it sewemingly just missing me as I went to cricket, heard a few rumbles when I was batting get out trying to go for a big shot after getting a couple of runs when opening. As the game continued with us getting into our groove although a few people got out when seeing distant lightning or hearing thunder when batting, the first rain began falling and me and my Friend (who wasn't in the team but was coming over later) saw the lightning turning our way and we could see that because it was getting heavier rain wise and louder in terms of thunder and then a constant lightning show began right in front of the people attending and playing and they stopped the game and postponed it after a while, also got a lightning flash on a timelapse at home and later I saw distant lightning in the early hours of the morning, would love a repeat of that and it's probably the reason why I hold hope in the channel's ability to hold and possibly strengthen storms. 

    Here's the first storm round near its extent.

    A sort of distant second round to the south and far east.

    This morning looked promising for some action, watching the clouds grow, but they headed away and no more replaced them
