1st August 1999 was a scorcher here but during the afternoon noticed cloud building to the west and it went bang in the later part of the afternoon.

I do like the egyptian climate especially in June and July when I've been before, although it goes without saying you don't expect to come back with camera full of big CB's and lightning shots

Oh Matron...stop messing about!
Looks like these storms were right over my area. Trying to cast my mind back...were these the ones that caused a great deal of flashes late in the evening? Think I filmed some on 8mm from an upstairs window when I lived in Shobdon, lightning up the whole neighbourhood.

Has anyone got a forecast archived from 10th July 1995? There were some epic storms that night (a Monday I think) which tracked NNW across Cent S England, the Midlands and Wales. I believe that lightning damaged an electricity substation somewhere in the SW Midlands that night and some parts of Hereford and Worcester went without power for 36 hours (I certainly had 2 days off school as a result of power cuts!).
