Lightning over St Catherines Lighthouse, Niton on the Isle of Wight, captured by photographer Jamie Russell (36) from Shanklin, Isle of Wight.
The dramatic weather conditions formed as warm air clashed with a cold front moving in over the country.
The storms marked the end of a mini heatwave which culminated in the hottest day of the year so far yesterday (Mon) with temperatures hitting a sultry 26 degrees in the south east.
