    Woah what a night :D

    We got the footy played in drizzle and gusty winds (lost 3-1 :D )

    But having had 4 good hours sleep I was awoken by a deluge at 0330. Torrential rain bashing on my window then a loud rumble of thunder :shock: to the North just before 0400.

    Seemed to quickly die but then replaced by another downpour, this time 3 very bright flashes of lightning :) to the South between 0405 and 0410, more gusty winds this time and no thunder heard.

    Rain kept coming and going at high intensity for the next 1/2 hour.

    Back to sleep but woken by another loud rumble of thunder at 0520 but no rain here at this occurence.

    Lightning detector shows strikes over this area at relevant times and the radar proves the intensity of the downpours :shock:

    Mr Sherman - a PM winging its way to you later. 3 more on my total :lol:

    It wasn't Tim, but I'm pleased you had it too.

    They were moving NNE, so likely that the first thunder I heard was from your storm and then a 2nd storm moved in to give the lightning just after 0400.

    I have heard a lot of thunder this afternoon but the thunder and lightning that passed overhead at around 5pm was some of the best I have seen this year, unfortunately my camera batteries were on charge after yesterdays and today’s outings.

    Great storms this afternoon. Stuck at work worse luck but the rain was nothing short of tropical in intensity. Lot's of CG and thunder and very gusty winds. However, was unable to take any readings as I have had to take down weather station as had a letter from council - this is a listed building and I should have got permission (eeeek).

    Hopefully only temporary. Winds gusting quite strong now and waves crashing over the road outside again.

    :lol: :lol: :D

    Heavy rain has now been falling for the past ten minutes, but the thunder and lightning now appears to have stopped. Was always slightly south and west of our location though.

    The best Lightning show of the year with cells to the South East / South and West of me, one huge cell overhead turned off the sky about half an hour ago, 70 minutes and still flashing away, Magic!!
