Since there's a distinct possibility we might get thunder this evening, I thought I'd post this up smile

The only kit you need is a radio DD laugh. Just tune it out on MW or LW I think. If there's anything circulating it'll soon show up as big crackles. Fun being in a storm when the radio 'cracks' at the moment you get the flash! grin

Latest from Met Office: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/nw/nw_forecast_warnings.html

Can you tell I like storms? smile

Its been travelling up the country - I saw it attack Leicestershire around 4.30 - 5.30pm, then it moved on up towards Sheffield and Leeds. Its probably including storms that have been happening over Belgium too.

If you press the Event Loop "run" button you can see what has happened, speeded up by a factor of 60.
