8):D8)

A fair display of sheet lightning between 0005 and 0055 over Salisbury Plain.

Nearest I estimate at 1 mile thunderwise but TBH there was very little thunder :? and what I did here was tame, there were approx 2 flashes per minute. 1 of the flashes almost seemed overhead but is difficult to be sure :?

Very misty still and heavy rain fell here throughout-all seems to have stopped/moved away now.

Glad I went to bed with blind/window open else I would have missed it all :!:

Was awoken by very heavy rain in Central London

Loud thunder followed

Not sure of time but probably between 1am and 4am

Most oppresive day of the year by far today after very uncomfortable night

I saw a bolt of lightning at around 4am. My ex-girlfriend says she was woken up by a big storm at 6:30, but I managed to sleep through it despite having one window wide open!
