    General Weather Shots

    Some general shots taken in East Anglia
  2. Met office weather map: Be happy if that comes off but I don't have a particularly positive feeling about this given the recent record of impenetrable capping in the SE.
  3. Some rapid upwards cloud growth round here in the past half hour.
  4. Definite upward cloud growth west of here. Looking interesting.
  5. Have to say, I thought today was a bit of a right-off for this location, caught just North of the squall line, copping persistent drizzle and zero lightning. But this evening it briefly went very dark, I looked out and saw low swirling scud coming over. As this cloud moved over it quickly formed into a rotating funnel - here's a pic as it moved away... And here's a couple of earlier pics of Mammatus on the back edge of the South Essex squall line:
  6. It departed with a CG lightning and ground shaking thunder. Nice way to go out. Would have been ideal to chase [if we didn't have a lockdown] - very slow moving.
  7. Quite a noisy storm in the end, but only occasional faint lighting flash. Still grumbling as it moves away..
  8. Plenty of thunder here in Essex, haven't seen any lightning though.
  9. Certainly more lively than I thought it'd be today. Unfortunately, they all seemed to just miss this area. Although, I can see the lightning from the cell just South of here. I considered driving up to Cambridge again but in the end couldn't be bothered. Did get a few pics though: Big gust front as line of heavy showers passed over: View of impressive thunderstorm tower SW of Cambridge: [Click the pic to view a large image]
  10. Had a drive through Melbourn and on to Cambridge chasing the right moving supercell this afternoon. Quite a spectacular beast it was too with a threatening looking cloud structure that certainly looked like it could drop a funnel or tornado. Looking from the M11 roundabout towards Cambridge.... View towards Melbourn.... While driving through Meldreth I got a view of cloud descending from under the base while crossing the railway bridge and decided to follow it - it swept across the road at speed with torrential rain and gusty winds following. It was difficult to make out rotation so I'm presuming a downburst. but certainly quite interesting.... Radar grab ~5 minutes earlier. [Click on the pics to view the larger images]
  11. Not sure I'd call it clear - temperature might be down but it's still as humid as hell.
