  1. I’m just sitting at my window in awe, Scotland maybe gets a storm like this once every 5 years. Not going to bed until it’s over.
  2. Edinburgh is getting absolutely obliterated. Lightning every second right now.
  3. Will be coming into Denver on the 27th. Not gonna make you guys wait until after 6 on change over day like last year especially if conditions are looking favourable haha
  4. Yeah Nick, hopefully see something a bit more exciting than a funnel cloud but as long as I see some great lightning and storm structure I’m pretty satisfied either way.
  5. Damn it’s been a quick year, can’t wait to get back out there again. Haven’t seen a single lightning strike since last years tour 3 so you could say I’m currently suffering with withdrawal.
  6. Well it was a tad warm out there today, Edinburgh reached an amazing 28C even with the cooler sea breeze from the east. Very unpleasant to be out in. And now it appears as though tomorrow will have a maximum of 15 or 16C which is honestly a bit too cold for my liking ?
  7. Not to bothered about the haar keeping the temperature down, this is perfect ?
  8. Arriving in Dallas a few weeks back, it was over 37C. Now for a scot who has only ever been subjected to 30C a couple of times in his life walking out of that airport was the biggest shock to the system I’ve ever had, absolutely horrendous. I’ll take 25C any day, next week should hopefully provide that.
  9. some of my photos, just unfortunate I have a street light right in front of my house.
  10. Fantastic, that’s another cloud off the list, not sure what’s left at this point. Saw Nacreous clouds last year, supercell thunderstorms a couple of weeks ago. Ill look at my met office pocket cloud book tomorrow haha
  11. Anyone seeing noctilucent clouds at the moment or am I just being really dumb
  12. 500 CAPE seems so insignificant after the 5000+ CAPE I was seeing while in the states haha but hey I’m in the likely area for thunderstorms today so can’t complain.
  13. Yeah probably easier not to bother, I’m sure I can survive 10 days without booze..... I think ?
  14. Damn, not sure I’ll get away with it now but we’ll see I guess haha
  15. Do you have to be 21 to drink in the US?
  16. Right, so I wasn’t able to get anything earlier than 6pm today, so basically as soon as I land, if you guys are wanting to head out, then you can drag me with you even if I’m jet lagged. I refuse to miss any storm potential especially if the pattern is looking decent
  17. I can get a flight into Dallas for 18:02 on the 30th, should I be looking for even earlier flights or does this suffice?
  18. Hey guys, just wanted to let you know my flight to Dallas doesn't get in until 22:02 on the 30th. I would like to apologise for being such a dumbass and not booking a flight for before 6 and hope I dont screw anything up for you all. Honestly feel like such an idiot now, if needed i will make my own travel arrangements to join the tour as i really dont want to inconvenience anyone
  19. It feels like we have been under the influence of an anticyclone for weeks, so boring. Damn blocking high's, get out the way
  20. Kinda wish they taught more storm related meteorology on my uni course, only had a couple of lectures on the topic and it was the most basic concepts. Hoping to fill some gaps in my knowledge here so keep these types of posts coming ?
  21. Probably won’t make it over the channel though, seems to have died all of a sudden
