  1. After cancelling my weekend trip to Cardiff the week before due to Severe Thunderstorms, we get to fly a quick day trip for lunch. Due to a weak occluded front, we have some challenges navigating some convective weather, landing with an ILS approach.
  2. MetOffice warning went out a little bit late today didn't it?! A short period of very heavy rain and gusty winds will make for difficult travel and temporary flooding of some roads Issued: 19:40 (UTC+1) on Sat 24 Oct 2020
  3. Finally managed to fly today, after the storms. Not with thankfully, too risky with such a low cloud base and embedded cells. Here lies the Northolt/Heathrow cell, I think there was two tracking NNE. Gave a rumble of thunder not long after this picture. Very interesting structure to it, once cell that didn't really spread it's anvil; the other however........ Look at the length of that cloud top.... I saw a decent size cell over France, but picture didn't do it justice. So I managed to get that cell show up on the stormscope and get a visual of it flyin
  4. Something hit Loughton today... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-53809021
  5. Not sure what it is, but that road was terrible in 2018 (May Storms) and the drains can never take the water.
  6. For anyone that's watching later and I have no major issues I shall be flying from Essex to Cardiff and will try get some shots if it's safe to do so. Estimating my departure at 1900L, landing into Cardiff at 2003L https://www.flightradar24.com/GZANY First area of concern drifting northwards. FRQ TSGR OBS WI N5224 W00214 - N5252 E00003 - N5210 E00018 - N5139 W00231 - N5224 W00214 TOP FL380 MOV NNW 15KT NC The area of concern drifting northwards for the flight later. Which could likely cancel the flight and maybe the trip, if not done by road.
  7. Some more information about stormscope. Mostly fitted to aircraft that don't have a space in the nose for weather radar. https://www.l3commercialaviation.com/avionics/products/stormscope/
  8. I have done, but the airspace around London is fairly difficult to avoid these things. If I had an instrument rating, then yes you get on top of the scud and would get some great views of them. I did this flight on last years' storms, was interesting. As you can see, you've got to be very very careful. You could run into a cell. I hope in the EU we soon get ADSB Datalink for weather downloads. However there's this video of me flying through some interesting weather, later to become TSRA.
