Lightning in the South.

I love looking at that!

Were forecasted tomorrow (north wales)

Inapickled Sat 26-May-18 20:20:43

Love this

KindergartenKop Sat 26-May-18 20:20:50

I didn't know the maps existed until I joined mn. I'm not sure why, but I'm definitely glad I know about them.

The forecast for tomorrow looks mad! I've never seen 12 solid hours of lightning forecast, what's going on?!

PinkBuffalo Sat 26-May-18 20:27:29

That's so cool! I've never heard of lightning maps!

Love watching storms in this app. What do the lines mean? Haven't got them on mine!

I've got a flight to catch from Cardiff airport at stupid o'clock tomorrow morning. Really don't fancy it with thunderstorms forecast. Normally I love a good storm but not when I have to fly through one!

Fantastic. Thank you OP for sharing

FlibbertyGiblets Sat 26-May-18 20:52:51

Oh I'd forgotten this. Thank you!

Love lightning maps!! 🌩 another one wondering what the green & blue lines mean?

If you 'hover' over the white info squares at the top of the screen they will give some more info.

The colour of the lines depends on the distance (close: green, medium: blue, far: red). Note that the angle spanned station is also important. Distances up to a few 100km and stations on every side of the t-storm give best results.

I'm in Cardiff I hope we get a corker of a show.

CrispbuttyNo1 Sat 26-May-18 21:55:50

I’m in okehampton, Devon.. sat watching it all at me bedroom window. The rain earlier was so heavy, each raindrop felt like a cup of water when I ran to the car!

DanFmDorking Sat 26-May-18 22:26:51

T-storm in Kent now!

Jjacobb Sat 26-May-18 22:54:23

I'm watching from my bed, I'm in Portsmouth. It's constant. Beautiful to watch and weird that it's so quiet.

Jjacobb Sat 26-May-18 23:07:17

The thunders starting now. I love a good storm.
DD and I just went for a quick walk, it's so warm out.

BasiliskStare Sat 26-May-18 23:14:15

We've just had it full over head but it sounds like it is moving off now- Love a good storm. Hope God had got his furniture sorted out ( my grandmother used to tell me - nothing to worry about Basilisk , it is just God moving his furniture about.

Couple of big strikes towards the Isle of Wight just now. I get a bit scared when they get too closeblush

tectonicplates Sat 26-May-18 23:21:24

It's reached London. Such a lot of lightening all in a row! So dramatic!

SageYourResoluteOracle Sat 26-May-18 23:40:56

Yay! It's reached north Surrey. Love it! I'm lying in bed with the curtains open so I can watch. I've not seen such rapid successive flashes like thus before- it's almost a strobe effect! And oh! The rain! Bloody Nora!

tectonicplates Sat 26-May-18 23:43:20

We've also got the curtains open here. I've never seen lightening go on for this long before, and it's so bright!

tectonicplates Sat 26-May-18 23:44:54

Crunchymum Sat 26-May-18 23:47:05
