  2. OK I think I can lend some credence to Vlad's story and the shelf cloud in York. I had noticed the development in the clouds and heard my first thunder to the NW at 19:30 and the convection continued to back build towards the SE very rapidly and we had thunder from two separate storms from about 20:15: one was a new one that had developed SE of the previous one and had skirted to my NW and the other developed to my SW and moved towards me. The movement was definitely to the right of the previous storms and the squall line that I have since seen on NW radar. This storm was accompanied by a

  9. I think most of the racist comments come from the non UKIP supporters. Is it a genuine fear that for the first time in over 20 years in UK politics , UKIP are actually 'speaking' Most UKIP supporters are middle of the road and just had enough. Like most their worried what 'words' they can use but most will have non white British friends.

  10. We are long due a referendum on EU membership, the main parties have tried to avoid any sort of vote or debate on the subject. I don't believe EU membership is the be all or end all of civilization as we know it, as suggested by some. Although I support UKIP I wouldn't be opposed to a radical reworking of our membership in many areas. Immigration is obviously a big factor, and I am afraid that a lot on here and the main parties are going to have to accept the fact that many do not share their views on the subject and don't buy into this multicultural panacea, we have all been promised.

  11. Thanks SnowJoke. I should have gone inside and got a better camera but I was playing with the kids and even they eventually stopped to watch the show: it was a spectacular cell and I had a chance to explain the structure to them. Not often you get such a good view in this country. I have attached another file which is a close-up of the front of the shelf cloud as it approached. Here you can clearly see the condensation tendrils of the rising air beneath the shelf cloud. The kids were mesmerized with this and the youngest one asked me if we were going to have a Hurricane I told her no an

  13. And you know full well SB that the comparison between today's (yesterday's) results and those in 2013 are skewed quite substantially because yesterday London and its boroughs voted en masse. This was explained earlier on Vote 2014 on BBC news 24.Therefore, you're comparing apples and pears.This was a decent result for UKIP; a half decent one for Labour; a poor but to be expected for the Tories and a disaster for the Limp Dems.UKIP picked up seats where real people are facing real problems because of real strains on their locality and social services, as a result of mass immigration.

  15. Judging by many of his quotes and the past manifesto workers rights would be diminished as UKIP wanted to water down discrimination laws and general employment law. He wants to basically make it easier for companies to fire employees which one would think would make businesses happier, I would have thought companies would want to invest where they can screw the workforce more! However an EU exit is the real problem which would cause huge uncertainty, the UK can't just vote one day and leave the next, apparently the process would take two years as that's the notice period in the EU charter,

An unstable airmass across England and Wales will bring another day of heavy showers and thunderstorms. ... S ENGLAND, WALES, MIDLANDS and N ENGLAND ...

  20. Thank you Muffelchen I didn't think I was imagining rotation. I was looking at the SAT24 vissable radar playback up until it got too dark to see another frame, and that particular cell on satellite did show clockwise rotation with a small up draft at the rear of the cell protruding above the rest of the anvil which looked like an overshooting top. This is evident on the sat photo's if anyone has access to some higher resolution images I'd very much like to take a look at them.BTW: Nice piccy of the approaching shelf cloud

Got pick the funnel no vids. not good at explaining due to health just trying to give comentary how it developed maybe how all funnel clouds start.

  24. Mainly cloudy,breezy and quite dull here today and feeling cool.just a brief bit of sun mid-morning. Now heavy rain has set in. Some bright echoes on the nw radar across a wide area of our region now. bands of showery rain swirling around the low currently centred over Wales. Not a day for outdoor socialising tomorrow either by the looks it. rain quite widespread over the country with that low stationary. Sunday does look a lot better though as the low starts to fill and the showers die away.Hopefully some sunshine to finish the weekend.

  26. Nick, you should try and come back to the UK for 6 months - reside in one of the towns being most affected by the uncontrolled immigration so loved by the last Labour govts, and seemingly being carried on by the Coalition, and see if your views change at all. I reckon you'd most notice it more if you are one of the UK's less fortunate who has to rely on social services, the local health service, local education, etc., then you might just understand some of the issues. Unless one can actually experience some of the issues, in some towns, where real pressure and strain is being put on local comm

  27. Well thats a shock, perhaps their Euro colleagues could take a lead and bother to turn up at the Euro parliament and also vote Yes to things that are good for the UK rather than a blanket No policy, any chance they might think again on voting No to new laws on people trafficking, and also the lovely cuddly warm UKIP politicians in the EU voted against more laws against the Ivory trade! I think the words morally repugnant come to mind, theres one thing voting No because you don't like the EU but to vote No on issues that should be above this EU exit obsession is very poor.

  28. Some really helpful analysis by many this morning. I had been thinking the rain threat for next week might diminish as we get closer to T0 - but with no model keen to give us a proper build of heights until T192+, there's a real risk that the GFS's conveyor of weak systems heading through / stalling over the south might happen. And therefore a risk of dangerous rainfall amounts, as highlighted. I just can't take the ECM seriously at the moment, it looks like a 2 year-old's first effort at drawing a sunset - there may be little of a jet-stream over us but I never find the weather that disor

  30. I can think of many things that are a nuisance that warm, sunny weather brings. Screaming children, shouting mums, bbq's and drunkeness, loud music that people seem to think everyone else in the street want to hear, sweaty, tattooed torso's everywhere you look. Wasps, flies, the horrid smell of sunblock, heatstroke, sunburn, etc,etc...... As for the heating bills then maybe people should budget a little better. Shove a jumper on, you'll be fine. I'd pay twice the amount of my fuel bill if we had some nice cold weather and a decent Winter and be happy to do so.

  32. Started the day in Burlington and drifted west to round 2 of the DCVZ (Denver Cyclone) one limiting factor today was upper winds which were quite weak at 20kts. We got one of the best storms of the day near Byers and saw some decent structure for a time before it all fell apart. Drifted back west to near Burlington and shot some great Cg Lightning to end the day. Southbound tomorrow.

  39. Which seems more fair to UK voters, UKIP turn up at the Euro parliament and vote Yes if its a good law, or they turn up and vote No to everything regardless. Can some UKIP voter please explain the logic in voting No to more powers to combat people trafficking and the ivory trade, I'd be interested to see exactly how this can be defended? Lets reverse this situation UKIP MP's get elected at the next GE would their new fans be happy to know they voted against laws that were by most peoples standards doing the decent thing ? it seems as if people give them a moral pass on anything because of

  40. *changing details slightly to protect identity* When I used to work on a inpatient unit we would occasionally get a man in who had been hit by lightening when he was 15. He was completely fine except for every now and then as a result of the strike he would have an episode whereby he would 're-live' the strike accompanied with all the physical symptoms and have a complete breakdown for a couple of days and then be fine again and be discharged as if nothing had happened. It was one of the weirdest things I have ever seen, but apparently lightening strikes can do weird stuff to the brain for

  41. UKIP councillors attendance rate is the highest. Thank you very much http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/politics/article3967236.ece In findings likely to irritate the Conservatives, an analysis by The Times has revealed that its elected officials attended 92.4 per cent of compulsory meetings. In second place were the Conservatives, on 88.6 per cent. Labour came next on 88.3 per cent, while the Lib Dems, famed for their local activism, trailed on 87.7.

  42. Hello Lassie. Of the 4 storms I saw in total only one passed almost overhead and that rattled through at a fair rate of knots. I set off in the car but couldn't keep up with it. The largest of the storms was the last one and that was to my east, more towards Wembley, Harrow way I would think. Quite an afternoon.

  43. Think 28th June 2005 had 60,000+ strikes, but if you add France in, it would easily top that ! Scary how its the 28th of June everytime eh !! Yesterday was a cracker for my area, car alarms, house alarms and the lot were going off, flash flooding was causing madness on the roads, and I followed that storm up to Sleaford. Witnessed some amazing CG's and even saw a c-c crawler near Bourne! At one point it looked like a small MCS as it passed North of Peterborough. Amazing how many bog standard people take note of the storms though on Facebook etc! People were freaking out about it all ov

  48. Well, long time not posts thanks to replacing aging pc. So not had a continuous set of 500mb anomaly charts. The output I have seen does suggest the NOAA charts below are probably the best guide for the upper air pattern over the 6-15 day period from now. ECMWF output this morning was closer to the NOAA 6-10 than the GFS output but neither showed much consistency with one another compared with their previous outputs really. So I would go with the NOAA output. Mind you none of the 3 anomaly charts predicted 7 days weather I got here, 7 days with maximum temperatures above 21C. The best I could
