Looks like a storm is headed for the Isle of Wight and Hampshire in the next few hours, also other areas of S'ern and central England could see a few storms pushing North early Weds morning, and further North by lunchtime.

Post your storm reports here.

It's arrived: but at the moment we're on the edge of it. Some light rain, distant flashes and thunder.

Quite a lot of activity building up W. of Portsmouth; Gosport? About 4-5 miles away & heading NE. Bright flashes, extended rolls of thunder.

Just been woken up by my lad to say there is a storm (good lad eh? ) and got up to see pink and purple fork lightning streak across the sky. Clouds are a nice pink colour to the north. lots of lightening with odd bits of thunder, but as I typed that just had a HUGE flash and crack of thunder :whistling: first real chance of to test the strikealert :) but not sure if I can get any shots as my tripod is at FIL :)

Heavy rain now

Woken up by a very lazy storm at 4.30am this morning. Long low drawn out rumbles of thunder and a few flashes of lightning. A look outside revealed very misty murky conditions and signs of some rainfall. Storm grumbled on until I fell back to sleep around 5am. No idea what time it started but fairly sure it was fading out at 5.

Currently bright but fairly cloudy.

Half hearted storm this morning at about 1.45am. Reasonable lightning but at long intervals and long deep thunder but on the quite side !

great storm here through the night.

amazing lightening.

very heavy rain..

Hi Kelly, the second storm group at 330ish was better than the first for lightning i think. I was awoken by it at 330ish, lots more rumbling than the group in the evening.

Have put 2 shots in photography.

I'm hoping we don't have any more storms as we're driving to Gatwick this evening and flying tomorrow - dont fancy it much in this sort of weather
