:D :lol: :p8):D:D:p8):D8):p8):D:):p8)

WOW WOW WOW WOW :!: :!: :!: :!:

Awoken at 0400 by thunder and treated to a natural fireworks display for over an hour :D Goodness knows how many strikes :shock: :shock: :shock: Pink and purple sheet lightning and cloud-cloud that beggars belief 8):D I mean 4 streaks right across the sky with one flash as background :shock: :!:

Right overhead at 0415 like a bomb going off :shock: :shock: then main acyivity centred approx 5-10 miles west with a core of lightning and occasional flashes elsewhere 8) . At one point constant rumbling for 15 mins :shock: :p

Torrential rain for 10 mins then light rain for half hour before another development slightly east gave 2 flashes and then heavy rain that is still falling now. Still occasional flashes and rumbles.

Not a breath of wind throughout.

Can so easily be seen on met ofice radar how there is a dry line that I was near before the new development had happened by 0500 but still with a dry line between the storms.

I think the main storm that went overhead then to the west had 2 or 3 cells :!:

Just ventured out and temp is 17c.

THANK YOU :p

So it moved straight north and Paul Sherman - what are the lottery numbers for this week as you predicted right at about 2330 last night :) :?:

Hi Andy - that storm is now over the Cotwolds. I'm on the edge of it but over past hour we've had some heavy rain and near constant thunder, though no particularly spectacular lightning as yet.

Looks to be moving very slowly NNE so affecting Midland for the rush hour.

Who needs an alarm clock when there's a thunder storm!

Was woken up at 6am with a storm which lasted around 40 mins, plenty of lightning and some deafening thunder.

Yes Andy I had a similar morning it started around 3:30 am with some distant rumbles and by 4:30 am the display was overhead moving slowly in land, some great IC and CG and some real deafening thunder.

Morning...

The rain started here at about 8.20am, lightly at first. Now (8.55am) continuous moderate rain with some heavier pulses here and there. .....and just a couple of mins ago (which made me decide to post) was a long deep rumble of thunder.

Sidebar : Seen 5 flashes of Lightning last night at about 2.20am in Congleton, Cheshire (work) 2 of them fork lightning which was quite entertaining, although i suspect not for the low flying plane which i could see in that general direction. Those showers i believe moved north-east through the rest of the morning.

Guys can we keep this to just storm reports. Thanks.

Had a pretty big storm ahere about an hour ago, lots of Cg and really cool microburst type rain 8)

I think we should keep it just to thunderstorm reports. Anything else in storms and extreme weather.

We have had heavy rain for the last 30mins and now the thunder has started. No Flashes but the rain has certainly harder. The Sky looks a bit darker - will have to wait and see what happens

Torrential rain started at 1315 and from 1400 there has been thunder to my SE and to my NW with constant rumbling for 20 mins of that time. No lightning visible due to daylight and low cloud.

I have yet to check sferics and radar but this is very exciting AGAIN.

Sorry for my monopolising on the activity again

Hey Lizzie I can hear the same thunder as you-you're about 10 miles away I think.
