Saw two excellent fork lightning strikes a couple of minutes apart from Swords around 6pm. Happened to be looking in exactly the right direction both times

Hail shower at 17:50. I went out the back garden and the brightest flash and instant bang and crackling as a bolt flew right over my head. Frightened the ****e out of me. My boys came running downstairs because they seen the flash. Struck a tree stake 30m from the house.

What's your location? That's the exact time of the two big strikes near Swords!

I see a nice bit of heat recorded today, creating some instability.

Just a few drops here earlier from high elevated blanket cloud, feels humid.

Fairly hefty thunderstorms broke out in the UK today with good diurnal heating and plenty of moisture in the atmosphere with Dp of 10 and 11 C in places. Just a slight chance of some sparks around SE and S coasts but low probability . See a band of heavy rain heading into the SE now.
