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.

Thunder, lightning and torrential rain in Portsmouth. I'm currently stuck in the pub until it stops, what a shame....

It's a very naughty storm. It's actually going to the west of me. But I've had a couple of flashes and rolls of thunder.

I keep looking at netweather's radar and trying to work out whether the storm over Gloucestershire/Bristol at the moment will get to Leicester in the next few hours.

Looks really bad over Cherbourg.

Storms seem to be all over Dorset...except the bit I'm in hmm. I want it!

Its saying thunderstorms over us in the night then to clear by morning and be dry and sunny - amazing. I hope they're right, that is perfect weather imo.

Some weather warnings just been issued by the metoffice.

Lightning in warwickshire

Cracking storm over Gloucestershire about half an hour ago. Gone now though

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 21-Apr-18 21:42:13

A bit of distant lightning where I am. Given I'm watching True Horror it's very atmospheric.

GloriaSmud Sat 21-Apr-18 22:07:19

Just had a rumble of thunder here.
Amazing lightning on the Portsmouth harbour webcam.

imnottoofussed Sat 21-Apr-18 22:18:33

Just started raining here but the forecasts are no longer showing any thunder storms angry

SneakyGremlins Sat 21-Apr-18 22:19:59

Live near Stockport - any chance of a storm here? I love em!

HabituallyOptimistic Sat 21-Apr-18 22:22:26

Oh no, I hate storms and it looks like it's heading my way.

Quiet as a mouse here 😔

IWantMyHatBack Sat 21-Apr-18 22:31:48

Few flashes and rumbles a while back, then lots and lots of rain, now nothing (Swindon area)

Is there going to be another wave early hours?

kooshbin Sat 21-Apr-18 22:32:43

Getting some interesting stuff now. Looks pretty massive over Bournemouth.

SneakyGremlins Sat 21-Apr-18 22:33:23

I've got some plants outside that would love a long drink!

SingingTunelessly Sat 21-Apr-18 22:37:18

Some thunder rolls and lightening here in Warwickshire. Heavy rain started but suddenly stopped although feeling fairly humid.

Jux Sat 21-Apr-18 22:38:20

East Devon: We had a beautiful sunny day (fairly cold wind, but our town is a wind tunnel) until 6ish when we had some splodgy rain and then a fabulous dranatic thunderstowm. It was great!

Jux Sat 21-Apr-18 22:38:58

dramatic thunderstorm blush

^ Not Bournemouth, I meant Southampton.

Lots of activity now, moving up from the Southampton area.

Just heard a loud crack. Reckon this is going to on for a couple of hours or so.
