    About 10 minutes of heavy rain, strong winds and quite a bit of thunder and lightning. It must have passed pretty close over me (just south of Manchester city centre). All of a sudden just eased off a couple of minutes ago but still rumbles of thunder every 30 seconds or so.

    Just had a nice big strike about 500 yards from the house... looks like it may have hit around the sub station, as all our power is off at the minute, i'm writing this on dialup on the laptop atm.

    currently getting about 5 strikes every 2 minutes

    My wife and I have just been out for a bike ride and were caught in some down pours but in the base of the clouds we could see IC lightning flashing off there was no CG. Where ever you looked in the sky you could see it flashing off.

    I wish the storm in Bristol had happened at night cause I would have seen the distant lightning :roll:

    My brother, now back in Worksop, has reported orange lightning this evening :D

    He even phoned to tell me :shock: I mean, we're talking about someone whose interest in the weather couldn't be more opposite to mine :D:wink:

    (Paul - nothing for me for 9 days now so can my brothers storm count as one for me on the league table :wink: :?: :D )

    • August thunderstorms bring the risk of flooding and disruption

      Any rain should be welcome looking at the parched ground but intense downpours aren't enough. Thunderstorms bring the risk of flash flooding as the rain hits the hard, dry ground. Read the full update here
