Yes it was a good storm. The thunder and lightning lasted about an hour.

In Oxford currently. As you can see, we were surrounded on all sides, had an alright but distant lightshow. After this, it just fizzled out. Quite disappointed.

Record of lightning up until this morning moving up from France into Southern the UK and a band of convection moving into Wales and travelling up through Northern counties. . Thunderstorms now moving out over the North Sea . Possibility of thunderstorms again today , more so in the SE of the UK.

Some low possibility of a few sporadic thunder showers over the Northern counties of Ireland today.

The sky is ripping itself asunder over Europe again. Plenty of strikes over the low countries and Germany.

This happened earlier today

Crazy lightning storm over Germany and the Netherlands at the moment. Nonstop continues flashes.

Spain getting it as well but with breaks between the flashes.

The best of it just missed Bristol when I was there on Saturday night but got about 10x strikes and some nice thunder. Very heavy rain, its a shame we never see the likes of it in Ireland really.

And through the whole affair there was a blackbird doggedly singing away outside the hotel room.

A Convective outlook tomorrow with the passage of a trough over Ireland with sunny spells and should have big showers of rain and hail move across the country and perhaps some sporadic thunderstorms possible. Fresh wind from the SW /W. Some very cold uppers passing over the country. Would have thought a better chance for thunder on the Eastern half as diurnal heating takes effect in the afternoon, cape and lapse rates not that impressive but still a chance of a few sparks perhaps. Best DLS in the S.

AROME model showing convective gusts associated with the showers I believe. Not much to go on compared to the recent storms in the UK but good practice whilst awaiting the big one here in Ireland

Looks like around the Munster region has the best chance of some thunder today although looks limited going by the charts.. Already seeing Cumulus bubbling up to congestus size inland from me here in Kerry this morning. Not much wind so slow moving cloud, where it rains could be quite heavy with hail possible. Interesting that temperatures set to drop very low in the afternoon in Munster, would presume from very cold heavy rain /hail and by then from lack of sunlight also ?
