Some promising looking cumulonimbus around me at the moment. Looking like they are intensifying! Already had a heavy but thunderless shower :/ hope they get going more in the next 2-3 hours.

The French stuff looks like it's on its way into the North Sea unfortunately.

The 2nd batch of convergence over Cherbourg peninsula looks like it could be hitting us, the one out towards NE France/Belgium looks north sea bound though Posted Image

after another miserable morning, drizzle and light rain, all of a sudden the blue sky appeared around 12pm. The humidity seemed to shoot up and we have just had a couple of very sharp showers accompanied by strong gusts. Will I manage to get out of the nostormsclub today, or will it be tommorow?
Currently moored just South of Rugby.

Lightning detected to the west of Lincoln. Suns come out here so who knows? Still not feeling that confident.

Lots of booms coming from the South of here. Sadly I think it's the MOD praticising their friendly fire over Foulness Island.

I'm hoping you're right mate, only had pretty much 1 overhead storm this year :-( I need more!
