2 big cells broken out, one near labasheeda in Clare and one south of foynes. Loud long rumbling bursts of thunder audible here in West Clare.

Have since merged to form one fairly large thunderstorm moving towards Ennis, radar returns look insane.

There was a very brief splatter of hail here in Castlebar followed by some raps of thunder.
That beats my previous record for wintry weather in this area which was 3rd May, a long time ago. I take mental notes of these things. Not sure it counts though as it was very short lived. Certainly a first for me to see hail in JUNE!!!

Meanwhile...in west Texas, storm chaser Laura Rowe captured the picture of a lifetime last night (May 17, 2021), with this fantastic shot of a mature supercell thunderstorm, illuminated at varying heights from the setting sun.

Unusual for the UK Met to put out a specific video like this. Something big must be going down for the southern UK:
Would say it is highly unlikely at this stage, but maybe still a chance of a few of these storms scraping the SE coast here?

God, it would make you sick how explosively storms fire up over France and Southern England. Just look at those cells firing up over western France right now. Meanwhile we sit and watch sat images and radar for 24 solid hours during any plumes that supposedly should deliver for us watching for the tiniest bit of convection to get going and get some tiny firecracker that goes out before it even gets lit! Super frustrating
