  1. The warning tells of a possible 20mm of rain in an hour.. Looking at the radar, with rainfall rates up to 250mm/hr that warning may be on the conservative side..
  2. Any hail where you are? Saw a decent sized hail core on the radar..another small area of intense precipitation approaching you from the South, then that’s it...dry once you get past Oswestry
  3. Couldn’t resist a look at the radar...postcode search shows my area right under a hail core as of 15 minutes ago, storm looks to be moving at a fair old lick with activity now over Chester and South Wirral.
  4. They already are by the look of it. Ah well...will have to make do with another dip in the pool, another beer then back to my air conditioned room for a spell...
  5. Had to make do with watching the action on webcams from my..blissfully cool air conditioned hotel room in Crete, but blimey it looked like you guys had a good night.
  6. You SHOULD do well from this, As I wrote earlier in the thread it’s been 18 years since NE Wales had memorable night time storms. A repeat is long overdue I’d say...and I’m missing it!
  7. Never forgotten it, I talk about it with the same reverence that my Dad does about the July 1st/2nd 1968 event (dust falls, giant hail, total daytime darkness and 24 hours of thunder and lightning along the squall line which stretched from Devon up along the England/Wales border to Merseyside and across Northern England to Teeside)
  8. Showing CAPE of around 1500j/kg with lifted index of -6. Should go off a treat..
  9. Count me in...I’ll definately be looking out for good webcam coverage of this event......
  10. My Missus will be wondering what the hell I’m playing at, spending the first night of my hol in Crete looking at webcams of the action taking place in the UK. Sod’s law eh? Last major night thunderstorm event I saw was in July 2001, now that we could be looking at another one, and yours truly is thousands of miles away. Hope you guys have a good one.
  11. Can’t help but start to think about the coming Autumn season, every time I see the sight of the horse chestnuts, beech nuts, berries and apples growing on the trees... Today is the first day where we in this part of the UK lose 2 minutes of daylight compared to the previous day, in a fortnight that accelerates to 3 minutes...time is marching on..
