Yes! I'm in East London and just looked at lightening maps and it looks like it might be a lively night. I love a good storm.

Butterflykissess Sat 26-May-18 22:52:50

It's been freaking me out! Its definitely where I am in London.

Bugger all up here , I love a good storm even though they also scare me a bit !

TattyFrench Sat 26-May-18 22:54:28

I'm in South East and it's been going for a good 30 mins. Loads of lightening but just tiny grumblings of thunder. It seemed right over us at one point.

ToadOfSadness Sat 26-May-18 22:56:45

It has started to get cool here so hope it is one the way, has been horribly humid for the last few days. (Almost Herts).

TattyFrench Sat 26-May-18 22:57:41

Thanks MrsTommy I'm right underneath the cluster over East Sussex. It's amazing but what's going on? I don't think I've seen a lightening storm before, there's no rain and just tiny thunder?

ToadOfSadness Sat 26-May-18 22:58:15

on the way

frasier Sat 26-May-18 23:00:09

In central London. Just heard first thunder.

bluerunningshoes Sat 26-May-18 23:01:21

we have rain, but not much.
lightshow still going on.
reminds me of my time in the us midwest where we had a spectacular thunderstorm each day (sometimes with threat of tornados)
I loved watching them

MrsTommy that map is brilliant!

Nowisthemonthofmaying Sat 26-May-18 23:04:21

I've been really enjoying it here in London. Nothing spectacular but the air feels electric and the lightning is nicely apocalyptic. Lots of people don't seem to be noticing it though, too busy looking at their phones!

HasAnyoneGotAProblemWithThat Sat 26-May-18 23:05:38

I can hear the thunder in the distance

Urubu Sat 26-May-18 23:05:57

SW London, wow that is spectacular!

LighthouseSouth Sat 26-May-18 23:06:05

Frasier
Outer London
Lightning only for about 20 mins

bluerunningshoes Sat 26-May-18 23:07:13

love that map.
looks like there is more to come

YoThePussy Sat 26-May-18 23:07:23

Oh its thunder is it, thought it was my stomach!

Amazing combined sheet and fork lightning in NE London, with distant thunder
