    Yeah I feel like there's not gonna be any storms here today. Maybe the odd heavy shower but nothing like the MetOffice was predicting. 

     

    Edit: Not sure what MetOffice forecast you're looking at, but for me it has 3 hours of potential thunder for you.

    I'm not very technological at the best  of times lol but it wasn't that one.  I'll tryand screenshot the forecast I have.

    You are right , do you know, at 6a,m there was one thunder symbol , then at 10 am a little shower and no thunder symbol and I've just checked now and wow it's a.l change again lol . I think they arenow casting to be honest.  Hey ho . I'm not upset either way it's just very amusing lol . 

    Thanks for pointing it out . I had to do a double take !

    I’ve always found that the Holbeach area seems to get the direct hits from storms every single time up our way historically. King’s Lynn is doing good for me so far, in what has been quite a mediocre year. 

    Being in spalding, we tend to find storms seem to go round us, but last night in Chichester all i can say is wow, last night was amazing, what a light show mother nature gave us.

    I believe the convergence line has shifted a bit South (I could be wrong though) as looking at the latest MetOffice models all the thunderstorms seem to be further South than me. I hope you get something though!

    The cam quality is 1080mp, pretty much the best you can get for a webcam.... And not only that the meteors had a flickering firey trail and actually go behind a cloud before reemerging, that's one hell of a seagull if that's the case, check out the video below...

    Yeah that was crazy. That was like a constant storm for hours due to the convergence line. I hope I do get surprised but I'm not holding out hope.

    I’m becoming more pessimistic for later today after reading both Convective Weather UK and ESTOFEX’s forecasts. 
     

    ESTOFEX have put the SE at a level 1 with heavy-consistent rain being the primary reason. Although, they have put the SE in a 50% lightening zone. Their forecast really isn’t that exciting.

    Dan at Convective Weather Weather forecasts a slight chance, with the condition that breaks in the clouds are needed to trigger any decent convection. However, mid-level flow will weaken as the afternoon progresses reducing speed shear which will lower the chance of cells popping up in the evening. It’s not ruled out though. 

    This afternoon is going to be reliant on now casting and radar watching, as in my opinion the conditions aren’t present to confidently predict where storms will hit.

    Another vid captured of the meteor shower on the Southampton webcam last night. Thunderstorm and meteors on same cam? I'd take that any day lol

    You can join me in my Ball Lightning blooper video! I put the same sort of thing up here last night.  I was told these are seagulls!  And I think I can even see the wings flapping.

    They do look like meteors (or ball lightning 🙃 ) don't they?

    The cloudy murk over Reigate has intensified. I see no chance of any storm coming out of this stuff. More likely to be drizzling before long.

    Anyone for a Yellow Warning for severe drizzle?  😁

    They are not seagulls, how can they have firey trails coming out their weeble lol? Seagulls dont fly in formation too. It's not ball lightning either, pretty sure it's the persoids meteor shower, another video I posted here clearly shows one going behind a cloud and reappearing from behind it the other side before burning out.

    It was a supersonic seagull. Like @Allseasons-si said we see them all the time.

    On the seagull debate from the channel owner 25ED94C7-5B08-4643-BF47-958D5178F76E.thumb.jpeg.7ee131a15a8103e94cfb12e4fdfd3990.jpeg

    As for last night that was by far the best storm here since 2018, ok so that’s not difficult considering what I’ve had since is more or less nothing. Great to finally have something at last and it turned out better than I thought it would at one stage.

    Morning. Where''s the coffee - uggg!

    Not get much sleep? I saw the storm reached you about 4am not long after it had left here so I guess it was light by the time that cleared

    What a night! Surprise uptick when storms began feeding in from the east, but I had scarpered before then so watched the clouds light up from a high point back near home.

    With hindsight Petworth would have been a good spot as the morning progressed but either way managed to get a feel of the storms, which is kind of the essence of the chase.

    Only just woken up 😅

    AROME, Euro4 and NMM all indicating the potential for storms in the Channel tonight but a little frustratingly all dying as they approach the coast. Might be lucky enough to get some lightning displays before they decay.

    Gah... the "Severe Drizzle" at Reigate has turned to steady rain. So much for gardening. So much for thunderstorms. Eyup, wet day in t'garden again.

    The seagull business makes me chuckle. The channel owner says they're seagulls, so that's that.
