No. Pity. Imagine if camera phones existed then!! We'd have plenty of video records.

Dont need footage of the '85 storm, my view of it from the duvet on the floor of my parents room was quite the memory enough. I was 10 but was enough to scare me witless, constant fork lightning punctuated by permanent rolling thunder and regular massive deafening claps. It started rolling around in the late afternoon, the air was clammy and fizzy, after dark it felt like it went on for 6 or 7 hours. was awesome stuff.

Hope for a rerun for Ian and co.!

Small risk of a few sparks in the northern half of the country tomorrow, nothing major at this stage.

Cant really see the cap being broken today , but 2moro looks more likely now , mainly for the midlands this one too so i wont be in for any hope here in the east

But yeah , some good convergence may well see some Cbs explode upwards

WRF showing some small convective showers up north kicking off in the evening. We'll see, doesn't look like much either way.



The model has lots of convective precip in the days ahead though, mostly in the west and midlands but some crossing the Irish Sea from Wales and southwest England to the east coast too.

This thread will be hoppin' in a couple of days....

Tomorrow looks interesting for the midlands, we should get a bang.

I think we'll definitely see thundery activity before Thursday, assuming the ECM is right.

Yes, the gif I posted above is the ECM showing convective precip moving up into the southwest/west starting Sunday. Chances are it could be thundery, increasingly thundery from Sunday onwards.

Warmer then usual sea temps should help things along with imports!

Should be some good radar, satellite and sky watching days ahead.

It's been a while since we've had a setup like this, hopefully it delivers, though I won't be wishing for anything as severe as '85.
