  1. I cannot wait for the season to get started, not gonna lie. Day 1 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Mon 24 Feb 2020 - 05:59 UTC Tue 25 Feb 2020 ISSUED 06:52 UTC Mon 24 Feb 2020 ISSUED BY: Dan As a surface low gradually clears eastwards from southern Scotland, the environment across much of the British Isles will become increasingly unstable during Monday evening and night as a cold pool overspreads relatively warm SSTs, creating steep mid-level lapse rates and yielding up to 400 J/kg CAPE. Numerous showers will affect Ireland initially, then spreading farther east int
  2. Well I got a cheeky tea-time flash, followed by three minutes of hail and wind. According to the five second thunder rule, the bolt should have landed on my nose - but it was about five miles away according to lightningmaps and I agree.
  3. Sounds rather exciting does tomorrow. Imagine a setup like this in summer, with a plume drifting up!
  4. Bit of green for t' lads... Day 1 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Sun 15 Dec 2019 - 05:59 UTC Mon 16 Dec 2019 ISSUED 23:04 UTC Sat 14 Dec 2019 ISSUED BY: Dan Similar to Saturday, a strong southwesterly flow aloft will cover much of central and southern parts of the British Isles during Sunday, on the forward side of a broad upper trough. Several shortwaves will move quickly northeastwards in the flow, enhancing shower activity and organising into longer spells of rain at times, with some linear features / bow echoes likely at times capable of producing squally winds
  5. Bit of green on the map, maybe Mr frost might see something... Day 1 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Tue 10 Dec 2019 - 05:59 UTC Wed 11 Dec 2019 ISSUED 06:48 UTC Tue 10 Dec 2019 ISSUED BY: Dan A squally cold front will drive eastwards across the British Isles on Tuesday, in a strongly-sheared environment. Strong convective gusts are expected, accompanied by a brief spell of torrential rain - however, the risk of lightning is considered very low given meagre instability and a saturated column. Nonetheless, the front will need monitoring for potential brief spin-up to
  6. @Flash bang flash bang etc Only in the UK would a low threat need to be further partitioned
  7. @Superstormuk I saw an anvil-shaped cloud today in Croydon and thought "aww, it looks like a cumulonimbus but it can't be because we have no storm forcast" Well maybe that bird that quacked was in fact a duck!
  8. Things looked a bit sexy earlier in Wallington, Sutton. A few respectable rumbles. And then it went away.
  9. I finish work at 7.30 this evening. Should I stay and do overtime that is the question?! Edit. I will wait and see, as that Irish storm appears to have died already
  10. The single paragraph makes me think even Dan is mourning the convective summer that was...
