  1. Noticed this tweet. Amazing structure for the UK! Caught a couple of storms while on the train through Lincolnshire this afternoon.
  2. Remember those symbols are model driven. On a day like today showers will show up in slightly different places for each model run and change the symbols depending. It's best not to focus on the symbols and just read the text forecast.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're past peak heating now and these kind of storms tend to weaken after. Different to the plume type storms of the week past. I'm never normally bothered by your typical low pressure autuminal type storms. Those storms in the north were impressive though.
  4. It's mostly likely scud cloud which is non rotating condensation that forms as the gust front pushes warm air above it. It can look spectacular and quote dynamic. Either way it looks like theres some great storm structure today.
  5. It depends where you are on a storm. It's rare you'll get tornadoes on the leading edge of a gust front but if this was the back end of the storm and it looked right on radar, I'd be very interested in that lowering on the right hand side.
  6. Morning all. Finally got a decent storm in the early hours of the morning. Woke up in panic realising I'd left the skylight open! Looks like today could be Interesting too. Me and a few other aviation nerds at work have been having fun watching aircraft do all sorts of wired approaches to Heathrow this morning.
  7. I think it may be a little too far south. What we need is for the same to happen further north on that boundary.
  8. Unfortunately it died very quickly. Things just cant quite get going.
  9. That towering CU i was talking about has just blown up on radar. Came out of nowhere.
  10. I only looked at this just over an hour ago and it showed nothing. Thats obviously a good sign!
  11. We just need these new cells to explode. The good thing is with these such high cloud bases you wont need to be that close to get a decent show.
  12. The channel stuff seems to be developing very quickly! First strike too.
  13. I was waiting to see if the stuff forming over the IOW was just radar clutter but its been pretty persistent over the last few frames.
