    Hailstorm around 10.40am followed just a few minutes ago by a rumble of thunder from it's back edge that's clearing over the Salisbury Plain!

    Report number 2 for today.

    A storm that seemed to split into 2 seperate cells :unsure: as lightning was coming to my E and then to my N as the storm slipped NW-SE. A slight clearance appeared between these 2 areas of the sky.

    Sun shining here all the time with a great effect on the nearest CG purple bolt B) !! Several nice CCs too!

    Lightning was towards Trowbridge/Bradford on Avon/Devizes/Melksham!

    Thunder not too loud but some very gusty (gale?) winds blowing around it's W flank!

    A decent storm here in Canterbury an hour ago.

    Thunder, lightning, and 30-40 mins of moderate rain.

    Witnessed two awesome C-C strikes right above me.

    :unsure:

    Got some photos of the storm which I expect was the one Andy Brown was watching as well

    Pic 1: Better view of storm as it drifts southeastwards

    Pic 2: Trying to photo the rain, not the heaviest I've seen but no too bad as I wasn't expecting anything!

    Pic 3: First large drops of rain

    Pic 4: Storm comming from northwest direction

    Ah yeah sorry, never noticed before! The pics came up in the post in a differnt order than I'd expected so just had to edit it so it makes sense! Like your earlier post it was a bit difficult to tell in which direction these storms were moving. At first I thought they were comming from the northwest, then it seemed to have more of a westerly movement then I even wondered if they were heading northeast
