    Think Estofex have a level 1 for SE England tonight which has lead to some head scratching...

    Yep they do, I'm watching the French storms, so far looks correct, but no idea on whether they are right about layer for us. Looks like it's chosen east.

    Way to the south, but that's some storm between Orleans and Paris! 1000s of strikes.

    Typical luck of this rotten year so far! 

    Ive just been reading the infamous El Gordo bust, and the build up to it! Good grief that must be the let down of many centuries, as charts then we’re showing circa 3000jkg CAPE and LI -12!! How that plume turned out so bad I’ll never know. This one didn’t have quite the same promise levels El Gordo had! 

    Could you point me where to find the thread for this El Gordo bust please?

    The storms have hit, I’m being absolutely battered by drizzle……sigh……

    24-48hrs ago the models (again) could really have got this evening any more wrong unless it had miraculously turned out to be 30C and sunny….

    Noticed these creeping up pushing northwards, not thundery though, not sure if these were to do with tonight's potential for the South at least?

    I remember El Gordo well. I lived in Yorkshire at the time but it did not stop me driving all the way to Essex in the evening to see the show. With the huge storms that looked likely I felt it was a worthwhile trip. I stayed out all night, slept in my car and was rewarded with.... nothing. By about 5am in the morning I gave up and headed home. As I arrived home I looked on the radar to see where I had been 3 hours earlier being pounded by storms several hours later than planned. It was a frustrating time but now I look back and laugh at my bad luck that night.

    Looks like the air is ripe for development behind the front, interesting, we will see if that happens over us too, as the front won't last long, it's fading out.

    I was tempted to crack open a can but might hold off and see what  if anything develops in the Channel
