Definitely as you say Flyfisher! Will bypass here to the north as it continues it's trajectory away from the other storms. Constant thunder here now in Cheltenham.

Have seen videos of flash flooding and hail online already from this cell, intense stuff!

EDIT: Maybe it won't miss, look at the latest radar frame! Arched galore!

We have high cloud here - from the cell complex west of Shep. Very hazy, so can't see any cloud structure.

Got very unamusing very quickly here, hail seems to be getting large, 50c coin sized bits bouncing of the car and the roof.

Thunder to my South, north, West and East. And ofcourse I'm stuck in the middle with just a few raindrops.

That storm in the inner east will be one for the news tonight it seems

No TV news footage will come from here, so far a 'massive' 0.2mm. Always another time, BOM upped tomorrow's range to 15 - 35mm.
