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.

Blue skies here now smile

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

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

Just woken by DS. Still pouring down here (e London).

Going to have that bike v tube quandary I'm a few hours....

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.
<feels horrendously cheerful now>

Lol! That is probably sensible!

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.

McPhee Wed 31-Oct-12 23:06:11

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

InherentlyCantankerous Wed 31-Oct-12 23:03:55

Weathers just got a lot worse here - S.E coast of I.O.W.

Argh more lightning as I typed that.

OhYouBigBadBeast Wed 31-Oct-12 23:03:00

It's quite slow Pascha, so I'm estimating around 2am, give or take an hour.

Nuttyfilly Wed 31-Oct-12 22:58:04

Heavy rain and gusty wind here in leicestershire, hope we don't have thunderstorms I really really don't like them!

mogandme Wed 31-Oct-12 22:54:19

Oh I'm in Hampshire.

mogandme Wed 31-Oct-12 22:54:07

Wet here - been raining ferociously since 9pm and heard what sounded like thunder about 15 minutes ago, but rain has just slowed to a steady drizzle.

Pascha Wed 31-Oct-12 22:52:15

When's it likely to reach Kent, Beasty?

OhYouBigBadBeast Wed 31-Oct-12 22:46:03

Ooh a proper storm mummymccar!

Brrr eerie!

Wind is gusting but I can't hear rain and I'm pinned down by cats, so I can't look.

AnEerieAirOfHorror Wed 31-Oct-12 22:42:22

Im in Rotherham South Yorkshire and its been raining here since 6pm and has been windy all day and cold.

mummymccar Wed 31-Oct-12 22:41:46

Southampton here and we have high winds, heavy rain, thunder and lightning. The sky box went offline at about 10pm and I've given up on it now.
