It was very impressive but quite short-lived - back to blue sky in about 30-40 minutes. We were sandwiched between two very high rainfall areas so didn't get more than a heavy shower and viewed most of it in the dry.

A good show today. 2 big thunderstorms between 8.30 to 9.30 and also 11-12. The first was the most dramatic with almost day darkness in Edinburgh and frequent flickering pink lightning. An awesome sight as it lumbered over the Pentland Hills from the south stretching across the whole horizon. A well marked gust front and a well-developed funnel cloud was photographed in Lauder to our SE. Even this evening a huge anvil with rumbles lay to our SE.

Yes, it was quite an impressive storm here, the epicentre was just to the SE, with frequent lightnings and strong winds up to 25 mph, but it didn't last too long and there was just ordinary heavy rain here (not like last week Tuesday).

In this part of Suffolk it was the wind that was key, snapping the tree behind the gardens and turning our gazebo upside down bending 3 bars and snapping one of the anchored ropes, I now regret not listening to myself to put it away. Average wind speed at one point was 30mph. The rain was noteworthy with many instances of the rain rate being over 125mm ph. Almost constant lightning and thunder and debris everywhere. Stanton 11 miles SW (ish) had large Hail.


Edit: oh and we had no power until around midnight.

Another cell out west at the moment - nothing compared to the excitement around Cambridge at the moment but it might give us a last hurrah. Still very muggy and warm!

That is a stunning photo!

A watch out for heavy showers and thunderstorms for some Central areas of the UK.

There is some activity out to the west and northwest of here currently. Doubt if it is heading this way though.

Was in Lincoln earlier today, and it was hit around 1.15pm by a 20 min. intense downpour of rain.   Then another approach of quite dramatic looking low-hanging clouds around 3pm, heralding another big downpour as I headed out of Lincoln.  Large areas of standing water seen on some roads, but yet roads were dry heading towards Gainsborough.
