I was actually caught out in this one whilst on a night out. The night started dry but getting towards 11pm it was raining very heavily, but with no lightning activity. It was when I eventually got home the lightning started happening as it cleared the area, assumptions being the focus of the activity (developing cells) were at the back-edge of the whole system. It was only a little bit though, a few I-Cs. As this is a storm that caught me unawares, the data collection was quite minimal. I did however look at some weather charts the following day and discovered it was a result of a slow-moving low centre with a triple-point pivoting over the local area as it moved over, hence the persistent rain. The back edge was fuelled by the cold front. The flow to the south was very slack and temperatures quite warm and muggy which lead to the resulting activity.
