    Weather here has been a bit nuts since 11am, sporadic rain and loud booming thunder on and off. Thought it had cleared, but just had another 2 big crashes. Oddly the skies not very dark here and haven't seen any lightning either, so im guessing its really elevated. :doh:

    You should have gone east would have been a different story!

    I got an hours worth at least of footage with heavy rain for 30 mins or more and lots of lightning. Unfortunately camcorder didn't have enough charge on the way home to get the amazing CC lightning strikes right in front of me! I'm yet to view the footage as not been up long as I was up until 3am and now charging camcorder for todays huge storm to the east of me.

    Coming up from the south too!

    Had a really early start in London yesterday, so needed my beauty sleep ( actually I need that even without the early start)

    Clouding over here at the minute, just heard a distant rumble. Which ways that storm near Norwich headed? looks like east of me again

    Didn't find it cold though jamie when i went out to the shops around 12pm, just cool, but at the same time very sticky and humid with a warmish wind.

    we had the most torrential rain and thunderstorm here last night, rumbled on for a few hours. But that was nothing on the torrential rain we saw this last lunchtime, an outbuilding at my work got hit by lightning. Dried up for now tho !

    Looking outside, you would be forgiven for thinking it was October. Windy chilly and light rain. YUK.

    It's moved up through Norfolk to the East of Norwich - over the Broads and now to the coast, but there's a longer cell or group of cells drifting NE up from W. Suffolk/S. Cambs way.

    Started raining here again, very large drops with hail mixed in. Cloud base is ever so dark. Not sure if I can hear distant rumbles or not, as I'm not too far away from RAF Fairford, and the jets are practicing again today.

    Yep, just seen that on the radar, broadband keeps dropping out, I assume it's spikes on the line

    As an aside, this really made me smile. My Granddaughter, 3 next week, called me outside and said "Grandad, after you see the lightning, you have to count, the more you count the further away it is" Storm chaser in the making there :doh:

    What a nice storm...... must have had >50 rumbles of thunder, with a couple of very close CG's which made the whole house shake. One strike was absolutely mental and must of hit less than 50m away, you could hear the shock wave bouncing off each house as the wave worked it's way down the street, I've never experienced a boom quite like it!
