  1. Made it into University of Reading to study Meteorology & Climate! Hopefully can provide much more to the forum from September onwards.

      Unfortunately grades weren't high enough for the Oklahoma course, but the main thing is I'm there now. Thanks all!

      Congratulations, Ben!!:clapping:

      Wished I'd been able to achieve that, many moons ago.

      Wasn't clever enough!! :angry:

      Very best of luck.

      Congratulations, good luck with the course.

  2. Never mind, the models looking a lot more progressive now and thundery breakdown looks unlikely.
  3. Looks like a possible plume event indicated by NMM & GFS for Tuesday into Wednesday, one to keep an eye on.
  4. Certainly not a bad looking feature.
  5. The showers coming in off the Bristol Channel seem to have relatively low max heights. Wouldn't seem a positive sign in regards to Thunder.
  6. Yes potentially, we'll have a better idea later.
  7. Yeah this is what we should be focusing on! Given the large DLS I would expect it to develop and become more organised in the next few hours whilst becoming more thundery.
  8. For us in the SW and Wales, 2 new sferics detected outside to sea to our west. Something to monitor over the next few hours.
  9. Indeed it is, Nick highlighted the potential in his storm forecast. Busy right now I'll update later.
  10. Anyone can get any pictures of the line of storms?
  11. ESTOFEX have issued a Level 2 for East Anglia, not much interest elsewhere in UK actually. http://www.estofex.org/
  12. For those in western areas disappointed by lack of storms, do not worry we have a nice little treat Fri Night into Sat Morning which has gone under the radar. May produce some nasty thunderstorms for a time.
  13. Gone very under the radar and haven't heard much, but the potential for a few nasty thunderstorms for us late Fri Night into early Sat Morning. Moderate CAPE, High DLS with the perfect trigger of the front looking interesting. Not a scenario I've really ever seen...
  14. Looking east towards Bath/Wilts, understandable why showers are forming here.
  15. Netweather lightning detector isn't real time; I'm using Blitzortung.
