Associated with a cold front that's wiggling sort of north south across the UK. Torro have issued a convective discussion for the potential for isolated tornadoes. Sorry no links or extra info at this pointed. On an overcrowded wobbling train ( or is that the margarita I had with dinner?) on my phone.

South coast. IOW visable from bedroom. Massive rumble of thunder right overhead

IOW does seem to be well positioned for tonight's fun!

Btw, I never use pcs or plugged in laptops in thunderstorms. They are a bit vulnerable to strikes. We had a strike hit the neighbours garden across the road. Approx 9 houses had variously damaged computers, phones and tellies. Was a bit scary!

I'm paranoid enough now to use a uPS on my pc.

Can it end soon please? I am scared (SW London)

Taking, tis only a little bit of rain and wind, nothing like Sandy levels, just normal British November weather welcoming us to the beginning of winter.

In north Hampshire it arrived with gusto (missed the lightening though, ds saw it) and it finished almost bang in midnight, so cool!

Morning! Shortly after I logged off the front arrived. Lots of wind and rain, but no thunder.
