  2. I thought it was something to do with Lady di and elton bog It is this here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_Willy_effect
  3. can i link your photo to ukww forum please?
  4. Can see that storm heading for Hemsby from here.
  5. Yes i hope the summer conditions tomorrow, are better than the autumn conditions today. Although today was only forecast to produce a couple of rumbles..... There was a Waterspout off the Kent coast earlier.
  6. Two fine days and a K*nt clipper... Devon may be a good area for tmrw
  7. Certainly looking mild and cold and dry, with rain wind and settled weather most days at times in the far North and South.
  8. Can see the elevated cloud over that way from the Hogs Back. I know shes put on a bit of weight, but that is a bit OTT. ,going back to bed then may tuck into a bacon bap later cheers, all those bread crumbs and pig flesh to sleep in

    Ive seen a few over the last 3 nights with green trails, looks like a cloud-fest tonight so annoying, maybe friday night will be better...
  10. Hi, This the storm with the large hail was on wednesday 20th july. The waterspout was on a saturday, 30th of july i think as a convergence-zone moved slowly east.
  11. Went on a small storm-chase on 20th July, as some forecasts had been showing a chance of severe thunderstorms in East Anglia during the evening. After noting rapid growth of cbs to my west about 5.15PM, I headed out to Great Livermere which is a great place to watch the skies during thundery weather. As i arrived the storm to my NW was rumbling constantly with mostly C-C lightning storm was heading SE towards me The anvil shield over to the east Storm moving closer with most of the hail to my north , i did get a few doinks on the car roof from 12mm hail, and gusty winds around 40mph. I drove through a couple of villages and found some flooding and some greenery from hedges and trees by the road due to a combination of hail and wind near Elmswell i saw what looked like a funnel cloud Further east at Mendlesham another possible funnel cloud was seen, and some foliage blown onto the road The storm was now over the Suffolk coast when i took these two photos,and still going strong,certainly moving away quickly. One of the best storms for a few years around here. timelapse here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NN-E31AMIHY

One of the best storms for a few years around here,although i wish i had not tried to chase it and took more video instead.... timelapse here
