  1. Just checked the 6z run still looks interesting
  2. GFS for a week Friday if this happens lots of smiles
  3. the Flickering from lightning on this cam in Germany http://www.wetter.com/hd-live-webcams/deutschland/berlin-tempelhof/576a5e38cebfc02f4d8b457c/ update : died of quite a bit in the short time i posted but worth keeping an eye on and other local cams to it
  4. Estefex was actually quite correct you must remember to qualify it within a probability of 'x' amount of miles of a given point, i would have said 50 miles would be correct, you can not predict much closer even the NWS and NSP centre in the US do not normally predict severe weather in less than that distance. the Oxford Supercell was almost within that distance of you. As to what you get with that type of storm even a mile can make a difference as to what you get one side of Bicester had 1" hail the east side just rain. So on our small island draw a 50 mile circle on a map around Oxford that will cover a large area the storm top when near Oxford was so high it was visible from Portsmouth i personally watched it from near Brill in Buckinghamshire and at one time drove under the edge and got caught in a torrential downburst soon got out of it to watch it start to break down to the north east. Remember just because storms of any sort are predicted does not mean you will personally get your own
  5. Nice looking storm South of Winchester on radar with seferics heading north im in Oxford raining here cooling the air I suspect this will kill the storm as it heads this way
  6. just back from Brill Bucks watched storms go by heard plenty of thunder didn't see any cg's all intercloud lightning hidden by at times torrential rain disappointed, looks like more storms forming over Normandy pushing into channel so perhaps more later
  7. Pat and I slept through a storm report on my Weather Radio, Paul and Arron wondered why Pat and I had not seen the good lightning display despite Pat reputably always having his finger on the camera shutter button !
  8. had a message from Pat today he was a bit too north for tornados but did manage a lot of excellent lightning photos and knowing Pat there will be some insane photos amongst them
  9. is this speed test ok i used to have an all wire adsl connection it was rubbish i was even unable even to watch a low quality youtube video without loads of buffering uploading a video took a day or more with sometimes the uploads failing i upgraded to fibre optic cable assist youtube 1080p and vimeo high quality with no buffering wow.
  10. some more videos from yesterdays Oklahoma, Andy Gabrielson rolls his vehicle in the outer circulation of the tornado http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mnrWExAppI

  11. just trawling through yesterdays/this morning tornado videos on youtube still some nightime tornado warning ongoing as i type this
