To complement the Summer weather thread.

Tomorrow could see some thunderstorms in places across England, but by tomorrow evening, the main area of risk appears to be in the central southern areas (revised forecast from earlier) , where frequent lightning and small hail could form in any storms that evolve.

I think it'll be interesting which places end up having thunderstorms. I have a feeling they'll be a bit like the snow showers a few weeks ago, where once you get one, others will follow after it.

Hope we get a good storm down here in Essex! I love a thunderstormgrin

TheWeatherOutlook are saying storms from this afternoon onwards.

It does look that way, with the potential for the, to push into northern England.

We’ve just had a massive thunderstorm in the algarve. Seems to have passed through now

I love a bit of lightning but one of our DC is like a scared rabbit, reverts to hiding under the duvet with headphones and music on.

Think I saw this mapping on here first, always like to look it up for stormy weather...

Excellent, I love a good thunderstorm

Love a good thunder storm.

It was trying to Rain NW London a little while ago.

It's all looking a bit violent over the channel. Has anyone heard anything on the south coast?

absolutelycrackers Sat 21-Apr-18 17:59:48

No heard nothing

Hoping for a storm here in Cheshire/Manchester border as I love thunder and lightning. Currently gorgeous sunshine with a cloud forming above my head

So far it looks like it's coming straight for me!

But, knowing my luck, it'll slide just a bit to the east and I'll miss out on all the excitement, yet again.

Thunder here in Portsmouth!!

TopBitchoftheWitches Sat 21-Apr-18 19:33:13


Getting very overcast here in North Essex.

OttilieKnackered Sat 21-Apr-18 19:34:46

Yep, also in Portsmouth and enjoying the storm (luckily no need to go outside).

elephantoverthehill Sat 21-Apr-18 19:37:09

Isle of Wight and a cracker going on here. I'm glad I didn't get around to any watering in the garden earlier.

DinahMo Sat 21-Apr-18 19:37:27

Oi Southampton stop hogging the lightning!

coffeeagogo Sat 21-Apr-18 19:39:35

I hate thunder and lighting - it's the only thing I am really scared of ☹️ and DH is on nights tonight. I hope it doesn't come London

We're just south of bath and have had a thunderstorm that was very sudden (blue sky, storm, back to blue sky). It was pretty cool.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 21-Apr-18 20:02:16
