Had a very sharp intense local thunderstorm last night. Started about 11.45pm and passed within about 20 minutes. There were several impressive CG strikes around us and one directly overhead - thundered instantly. Rain turned so heavy at one point that I went back outside to make sure it wasn't hailstones (I'd already gotten soaked walking back from the pub.)

Quite a bit of lightning and thunder over the past hour here in Thanet (not TOO close I don't think) Hasn't half chucked down some rain too with a lot of flooding on the roads particularly over Broadstairs side!

Think you were too far away, I saw a flash up by the Airport around the same time as Rollo but that was it. Shower appeared to drift west from there.

A few rumbles and some rain here in Swindon with nice cloud formations and varying wind directions probably due to updrafts.Nothing amazing but a good start. :whistling:
