  1. Just saw a very distant bolt of fork lightning from storm to the North, got me very excited actually!
  2. Definitely some good convection taking place over Gloucester areas. Can see tops of anvil from Filton, looking impressive!
  3. I've not seen this intensity of rainfall in quite a while!
  4. I'm a little too far south to view this unfortunately, must be impressive!
  5. Odd looking, low hanging cloud base to my north. Fortunately sun poking through now to increase surface heating.
  6. Some very convective looking skies here, and some very dark cloud bases too, could be an interesting afternoon!
  7. European Storm & Convective Discussion

    Quick one off post on this thread, but going to be flying home from Palma to Bristol soon, with apparent MCS across Southern France, should be a good view!
  8. Active storms look to nail Bristol in the next few hours, enjoy it while it's there boys as not home to see it myself!
  9. From my inexperienced eye, storms forming to SE as a result of outflow from large thunderstorm system to west. Either way someone is going to get something today/tonight.
  10. Typical one of the most promising risks of storms for Bristol and I'm on holiday, would post more but not had time! Good luck to you all and hope the storms can crack open the Bristol Storm Shield
  11. Probably due to the shallow CAPE values and fairly low lapse rates.
  12. My thoughts of potential new developments atm:
  13. Right now if I were you I'd situate myself in the triangle between Northampton, Peterborough and Cambridge. There is an area of clear sky over West Midlands, north of the current line of AcCas, as this continues to move east strong dirnual heat could spark off a storm or two just north of the line of showers atm.
  14. I can just see that line of precipitation forming exploding into some huge thunderstorms as the heat builds. All from that line of Cumulus that I saw earlier. The line of precipitation is slowly increasing in intensity too.
  15. Precipitation beginning to form just south of Oxford along the line of developing cloud.
