Storm went through here at about 11:00 here in S C U N T H O R P E. Not particularly powerful, just a handful of rumbles really and a short spell of quite heavy rain. Still some interesting clouds around though. I woudn't be surprised if another one comes by shortly :D

On a different note, wouldn't it be possible to make an exception for this town name in the swear filter. It's quite annoying!

Convection's not so fast here today. Thankfully, there's a bit of a lid on things so far! :D

Tim B - I was witness to that heavy storm too, we've had burst of heavy rain showers from about 10am to 12noon today, but like you, I neither heard any thunder of saw any lightning. The radar picks the showers up well this morning.

sferics gone a bit mad south midlands/and southwards or am i seeing things :?: what does a green circle usuallly indicate(sferic map) or is it an area of developing storms :?: Scattered dark clouds/cb's are certainly building but no action yet.

Very heavy showers this afternoon, some thunder and 3 lightning strikes, one fairly close, well it felt closer as at the time. I was stood under a scaffold structure, not the best idea! :shock:

This isn't a storm report but this is the only thread available for today :!:

To my North and north east there has been some massive and very black cbs in the last 2 hours. Show up very well on the radar including red colouring :!:

Me thinks that north Wiltshire has taken a pasting :roll: while west Wiltshire is under glorious sunny skies :(

The green circle indicates where the software on the detector thinks that there is almost definitely a storm.

Cheers for that WF i had thoughts on similar lines but now it is confirmed.

Just to add, despite sferics looking v. close to me i did not get any thunder at all :-x everything is bypassing this particular area and its daarn annoying..not one single proper storm yet :?

There was a rumble of thunder at 3pm.

This region of Tyneside often struggles to get two thunderdays in an entire summer (in both 2000 and 2001 there was only one thunder-day) let alone two in a row!

Having said that, all this great convectional display has been at the expense of the sun. 3-4 July were not days of sun and showers, cloudy with intermittent heavy rain would be a better description. But we did get two thunderdays!
