    lots of thunder flies out today in the garden, taking that as a good luck for tonight 

    So often that nature provides the very best forecast

    I have seen situations like this over the last 20 years and they never plan out to how models predict. (like asking which corn in the pan will popcorn and exactly when)     It could form over Bristol and hit Midlands missing SE, it could form over Belgium and miss UK completely.  no one knows.

    Yeah, very difficult to predict these storms.

    If you play back windy. com direction of cloud travel the past 2 hours it's much more NNE than I thought it would be. Unless this is meant to switch more NE later?

    I spotted this too. It's already on the exact NNE track shown in certain models for later. Hopefully this bodes well

    Am I correct that any convective activity is likely to be centred E of the rainfall..?

    Latest UKV has thrown up another solution. 😅

    Yeah as Mapantz said, another UKV solution but a good one also with 3 rounds of thunderstorms in the space of 36 hours!

    Reminds me a little of Monday 24th June 2019... 😯 (when the storms kept veering more to the east than originally forecast)

    According to my little weather station the humidity is dropping here in Somerset . Was 60% earlier this morning and now 35% . 

    Sky becoming hazy as well but as I said humidity dropping in fact now down to 33%  so I think that the forecast for storms further east of me is correct. 

     

    Don't confuse relative humidity with dew point. The RH will drop as it gets warmer during the day.

    You need to use something like this to calculate the DP from the RH and temperature - watch the DP rise

    Dew Point Calculator (www.dpcalc.org)

    Yep, this one sprung to my mind quite quickly! Not sure it’ll be as amazing as that one was, but one can dream! 
     

    Alternatively, a June 22nd-23rd 2016 redux would be even better!

    27C here and climbing fast - humidity also creeping up it feels to me (don’t have access to stats like @Paul Sherman lol).

    Fingers crossed, despite my ongoing reservations and fears of easterly doom.

    Yes the UKV is factoring a few homegrowns in the heat and the elevated.   First few storms maybe 7pm south east with more elevated overnight.

    Something takes a huge chunk out the temps around 7pm in SE hmmm wonder if that's an expected early import or homegrown rain shower dropping temps

    I saw in the thread where Netweather released UKV to subs, they said it's OK to share the occasional frames etc, especially during a potentially significant event like this - just not to go mad sharing every run all the time.

    Sky is starting to take on a pre-thundery look, mid level cloud starting to build off to my south west.

    If certain models are to be believed, I am in the sweetest of sweet spots. 

    Humidity has increased in the last hour

    Hoping the storm food will be visible in the skies in an hour or two

     

    It's like Christmas Eve as a child right now, really looking forward to the annual disappointment, and French theft of storms. It's always a highlight of summer
