    Watching the storm south of Newark and seen this circulation on the radar too. Absolutely loads of lightning but rain is blocking my view of that side of the storm.

    What a storm that was. Back to blue skies now, a rainbow and very little wind. Bring on round two! 

    Hopefully these will rumble on into the early night, giving rise to some night shows. 

    What an absolute dream of a day for many. Just goes to show what good levels of shear can do. Utilises the CAPE and doesn’t flood it all out by separating the Downdrafts. All the ingredients have came together perfectly.

    Just got some footage from my house in Tamworth to share from 6:30pm today.  I didn't have my GoPros handy due to working late so I had to slum it on my phone!  A nice bit of turbulent cloud action... 🙂

    Just had a look at that, some nice rotation there.  I'm still kicking myself for not doing the hyperlapse in UHD, have fixed that now for the next time! 😡

    Right well it’s finally won. Two weeks of storms not electrifying, dying on approach, or developing on retreat. I’ve done the hard work. I’m done. No more chasing this year.

    My video of one of today's thunderstorms that hit Northamptonshire, UK.⛈⛈⛈

    The afternoon of 28 July 2021 saw a relatively small but intense thunderstorm develop just outside of Northampton and came straight through Wellingborough. The storm brought sudden torrential downpours which gave poor visibly and localised flooding. Loud rolling thunder was present throughout the entire storm although not much lightning was visible.

    What a day, two storms while at work near Ashbourne, one as i finished over wirksworth and then I headed east and caught the line that exploded east of notts and followed it to Grantham! Got caught in a nice little hail downpour east of notts and then as others have mentioned frequent long IC/CC lightning in the line! Been great seeing everyone else's pics & reports too 👌

    I do love cloudscapes but right now I’m done with cloudscapes. All I have is cloudscapes.

    welcome to my world mate, we had 19 storms within a 20 mile radius today and not one was close enough, heard 2  very distant rumbles and thats it for this year so far...but as you say beautiful cloudscapes.

    Sadly I missed the thunder and lightning from the line that just went through London as I was in a gym class. I drove through it though on the way home and the sky was awesome! 
     

    Was the fifth biblical downpour of the day and the roads are now covered by flash flooding/huge puddles!
