  1. @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!
  2. Things looked a bit sexy earlier in Wallington, Sutton. A few respectable rumbles. And then it went away.
  3. 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
  4. The single paragraph makes me think even Dan is mourning the convective summer that was...
  5. Let's talk about August 2004. Anyone have any videos or experiences from it? I heard that it was quite a prolific time for the uk. I was living in Stoke at the time and don't personally remember anything notable
  6. Good sporadic morning. Day 1 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Wed 04 Sep 2019 - 05:59 UTC Thu 05 Sep 2019 ISSUED 05:28 UTC Wed 04 Sep 2019 ISSUED BY: Dan Broad upper trough will migrate eastwards across the British Isles on Wednesday, with a couple hundred J/kg CAPE developing in response to warm SSTs and diurnal heating inland. Various areas of showers will tend to develop behind the cold front which will clear SE England late morning, but for most areas the depth of convection will be too shallow, and instability too weak, to produce much in the way of lightning. There will also be some longer spells of rain at times across Scotland in particular as the wrap-around occlusion slides eastwards. Overall the greatest risk of lightning will be across Scotland and northern England during Wednesday afternoon, but probably fairly isolated. There will most likely be an uptick in some sporadic lightning activity over the North Sea overnight. http://www.convectiveweather.co.uk/forecast.php?date=2019-09-04
  7. Speaking of which, i often wondered what this was that I saw a few years ago. https://youtu.be/m_xGSMUVFvY
  8. I was thinking about this time of year today. The next 6 weeks seems like a better time for funnel clouds. Don't know why, maybe the wind, the low pressure, idk
  9. Someone will get something. Somewhere Day 1 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Sat 31 Aug 2019 - 05:59 UTC Sun 01 Sep 2019 ISSUED 09:39 UTC Sat 31 Aug 2019 ISSUED BY: Dan Weak instability and marked mid-level dry intrusion in a highly-sheared environment along a cold front drifting slowly eastwards across Britain during Saturday will encourage some convection on the rear side of the frontal precipitation - with a few LEWPs noted in radar imagery so far this morning. Overall the limited convective depth and weak CAPE suggests the risk of lightning is rather low, although some gusty winds may occur locally. The post-frontal environment will be characterised by a cold pool overspreading the British Isles as an upper trough shifts eastwards, steepening lapse rates and generating a few hundred J/kg CAPE. Showers will become more widespread across Ireland and western Scotland through Saturday, extending across the Irish Sea and into western England/Wales later in the day, and continuing overnight. A few isolated lightning strikes and/or small hail may be possible from the strongest cells. http://www.convectiveweather.co.uk/forecast.php?date=2019-08-31
  10. @TomSE12 Sorry to hear that you were put off storms from early on. Given that I've moved to southeast London this year and brought the Manchester storm shield with me, expect to dodge many more thunder bullets!
