    Thanks Paul

    Can't help but notice Andover on that map and think of Andover, Kansas (F5 1991! in the US)

    Obviously, I hope the same fate doesn't bestow itself on Andover, Hants! :)

    It reminds me of the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong, a former British crown colony, from UK to People's Republic of China in 1997. (Hand Over)

    :)

    Where are the cells on the back edge on the satellite?

    Look on the satellite here - you will see along the line of cloud currently over the SSW, a streaking anvil (of sorts anyway) running out over the Bristol Channel, across Wales towards the Irish Sea.

    Another point to note, how many low pressure systems want to line up? One over C/N Europe, one over the SW and one over the Atlantic, all in a long line! Dont see that often!!

    Impressive radar returns in the south. Unfortunately I no longer have NW radar (it's the best). I'm looking at Meto radar but apparently the queen owns it. I'd like to post an image up, but not so keen on having my eyes pecked out in the tower of London.

    Seems to have eased a bit now, though the rain bit earlier was torrential! Still raining fairly heavily though.

    Back end of the system is just passing over me, clear blue sky just to my south but the cloudscapes it's giving at the moment are awesome.

    What are the chances of anything else moving over the S.E later today?

    Just mod/heavy rain at the moment, electrical activity has all but gone!

    Not too encouraged by Liam Dutton's forecast for two reasons:

    1. Didnt mention thunder on his forecast, either referring to the current situation, or for any thunder in the showers this afternoon. Seemed exceptionally vague about shower development and intensity.

    2. According to the BBC graphics (dont we love 'em) it will still be raining across London by 3pm with one or two showers further west. We shall see about that! lol

    According to the BBC at 7.15 this morning, very low - didnt mention thunder for anywhere in the UK. As above, the graphics suggested the rain band not finally clearing until 3pm, despite the tail end of the rain already moving across! I really hate those useless graphics!

    EDIT - Just checked CAPE values and they havent changed much from last night - with the rain almost stopped here now (nice one BBC), the chances of getting some sun should be good and we should see showers sparked off later.

    As for later, had a fair few mm's of rain, if the sun gets out and it warms up, who knows. Originally was going for yes but the BBCs lack of thunder in the forecast makes me think otherwise.

    Lol! Trust me, it wasnt a supercell - nothing to get up a 6:30am for, just a few crackly rumbles and sheet lightning (3 I think)

    But, look at how it intensified to the south and then as it moved a bit further North, death becomes it. Yes, I got some thunder and lightning, but when it realised where it was it soon turned the switch off lol

    EDIT - Checked the MetO regional forecast, nothing much in the way of thundery weather expected this afternoon, though did mention possibly thundery showers for the SE. If we get hours of sunshine, maybe. If not, all eyes to Tuesday! Atm, some very heavy rain likely throughout the day, though there are high CAPE levels over N France throughout Monday into the evening. Could bring some possibe thundery activity!
