  1. Hurricane Ophelia

    A clear slot has not long formed near the centre of ex-hurricane Ophelia.. Almosts looks like a proper hurricane again..!! https://en.sat24.com/en/gb/visual5
  2. Hurricane Ophelia

    According to this wave heights are reaching 40+ft.
  3. Interesting comments from ESTOFEX for the British Isles today. http://estofex.org/ British Isles A highly dynamic situation evolves late in the period due to an intense trough moving into the British Isles. Its tropopause fault will cause lift and steep lapse rates will evolve. Low-level moisture will decrease from the west, however, warm sea surface will limit the moisture decrease somewhat. Currently, models do not indicate the development of a well-defined low-level convergence line that could support a convective line capable of producing severe wind gusts and tornadoes. Instead, only isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected, capable of producing gusty to locally severe wind gusts and also a tornado is not ruled out. The situation must be monitored in the next model runs as severe potential can increase if linear organization of storms occurs.
  4. Hope you dont mind Neil, but ive taken 2 stills of your very close strike.
  5. The surface winds are now veering from a SE direction to a S/SSW so this low cloud dragged in from the North sea should thin and disperse. Still there is a sky full of cirrus (thin in parts which) which is pegging back temperatures so the potential severe storms may not materialise here in the North East. Still early and storms aren't progged for this area until 6pm onwards anyway.
  6. If these incoming storms leave cirrus in their wake it doesn't bode well as surface heating will be compromised, but I live in hope as the storms earlier cleared to unbroken sunshine.
  7. http://estofex.org/ A level 2 was issued for Northern England mainly for (very) large hail, severe wind gusts and tornadoes.
  8. Lots of energy to be tapped into if this came off.. Long,long way off in Fantasy land though. .
  9. Stormchase 2017 - Chase Day 10 - HIGH RISK

    SPC to issue a Tornado and PDS watch within the hour.
  10. Stormchase 2017 - Chase Day 10 - HIGH RISK

    Cant believe its been 10 years since the Greensburg Tornado, lets hope its not a repeat of that awful day as the High Risk area is bang on Greensburg area..
  11. Stormchase 2017 - Chase Day 10 - HIGH RISK

    Not a Moderate risk Paul....HIGH Risk. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day1otlk.html
  12. Seems like many are moaning..(again) in the model output discussion thread...Feels like ive gone back 40+years..proper playground claptrap..!!
