  1. Textbook cb heading straight towards me. Pictures don't do it justice, it's absolutely huge.
  2. Ah, so it IS possible to actually identify a supercell on the current radar we have access to. Good to know. Yeah, the bbc and usual media outlets are useless when it comes to predicting severe weather. They seem to want to do everything they can to pretend supercells and tornados do not exist in this country, even when it's right infront of their eyes you get rubbish like "what appears to be a tornado" or crap like "mini tornado" when there's no such thing. It's a pretty dangerous way to go about things if you ask me - people need to be informed about the potential dangers. Thank god for netw
  3. Yeah, not 100% sure that's the one but there was definitely a confirmed evening supercell over london a couple/few years ago with literally constant strobe lightning. I saw it around 11pm that night and watched it for a good half hour. There was no thunder. I assumed this was the same storm as the video seems to match up with what happened on that night - an evening severe north/north east london storm with constant strobe lightning. We were all talking about it in the thread on this site at the time so it should be archived somewhere if you want to find the exact date.
  4. Black here now, a cell is coming from the northwest with visible vigra.
  5. Absolutely, although that's not to say we don't get the odd supercell here in the uk.
  6. I had a look at that was is only 2 seconds long? Couldn't really see anything on there but it is hard to see.
  7. We were commenting on it in the storms and discussion thread on the site so it's probably archived somewhere. At least I think that's the date anyway. I did find this footage, not sure if this is the same storm as the confirmed supercell but it looks similar with it's constant strobe lighting...
  8. I think most people in the thread know what we've had today isn't supercellular but just on appearance alone some cells have looked similar from a artistic point of view (does that make sense?). Like the one over the coast I commented on earlier! But yes, I'd really like to know some telltale signs to look for on radar to better understand how to spot supercells.
  9. Haha, I'm not even looking at the radar at the moment (although I know your comment was not directed at me). I think Thunder And Lightning was commenting more on the size of the storm image and comparing it to a supercell. Out of interest though, what are the telltale signs of a supercell radar signature? I'd like to know a bit more about this and be able to spot them more easily on radar on the rare occurrences they do show up in this country.
  10. Agreed. The last good one I had was the night of the london supercell a few years back (and even then the supercell didn't pass over me, it was another storm I got later on that night).
  11. Edenbridge storm just came back to life with a huge bang. Going crazy on radar. My friend confirms it's pretty bad.
