Heard frequent rumbles of thunder during a heavy shower around noon in Lowestoft yesterday.

Thunderstorms are a feature here during Pm airmass, often with multiple lightning strikes rather than an odd or 2 rumbles of thunder. E Anglia is often the warmest part of the country in this airmass so convection tends to be very vigorous.

Indeed.  We were caught in a line of showers from mid morning through to late afternoon with some very heavy rain at times.  A few miles south was clear.

Good grief, RD, just had a look and you may be right.

Also seems TWO Rain Radar is lacking its map. Signal only.

Here in Edinburgh, I've just noticed that we are under yet another yellow warning for thunderstorms which covers the east of both Scotland and England, and which comes into force from midday today.

I know that this doesn't necessarily mean that we will actually get any thunderstorms here, and we have seen plenty of examples during this summer where this has been the case. However, there has also been plenty of other occasions during this summer when these thunderstorms have occurred here and this has actually been quite a decent summer here overall on that front.

With that in mind, it will be interesting to see what happens this time.

Located in the most boring part of the UK when it comes to our weather where hardly anything ever happens which is even remotely interesting in terms of our weather (other than yet more constant grey skies), and with the more interesting weather usually always occurring elsewhere in the UK apart from here.

Sure I heard some distant rumbles of thunder a few minutes ago. Some good tall clouds rising to the northwest, and the radar shows some showers up towards Reading.

Caught between cells to the east & west. The odd rumble from the eastern cell about an hour ago. A sprinkle of hail has just passed through, only for a minute or two though. Skies look impressive to the east.

Menacing dark amorphous cloud looming from the south, radar is not unduly alarming but things are developing unpredictably.
Can hear distant thunder to the west. apparently from cells close to the A1

I wish that I could say the same here and although it has now started raining here in Edinburgh, it still isn't doing so with any great conviction just now. According to the latest rain radar maps, there are no lightning strokes at all on this side of the Border (looks like the English are hogging all of the storms for themselves this time) which suggests that this area of storms has probably just decayed into a weakening area of rain by the time that it has got here which is very disappointing indeed.

This means that whilst that should be enough to end what will now go down as our longest dry spell of this month in its fifth day, this seems unlikely to do anything else here other than that.

Thunder heard at 18.45hrs and cloud approached from the south west giving heavy rainfall and a good display of lightning.

The main storm moved away over the next hour and at 20.00hrs had gone, but conditions are still unsettled and it is cloudy to the NE.

That is an unusual almost circular ring of thundery storms at the moment.

Some places could get a train of heavy ones for an hour or more.

Looks like you've hit it lucky today for storms Roger.  I could see your earlier storm to the east of me earlier this evening, a very impressive looking CB with a huge, classic anvil structure.   We've just had a brief thundery downpour around 9pm, but still hearing some rumbles just now.

Hi Andy -

We've had a seriously good thunderstorm in the Witham valley looking towards Nocton and Potterhanworth.

Seems to be north of Lincoln now. Still going. You look to be on the south western edge of it, north of Saxilby.

Roger at 21.25hrs

Nice convective day. Something happens about 50 seconds in something seems to push the lower base to the right
