  1. Sprites are a form of lightning (yes I'm talking about a form of lightning, not the drink!) that occur in the mesosphere above thunderstorms in the troposphere. They are often triggered by discharges between the thundercloud below and the Earth. Despite all of this, they are rarely documented. There have only been a few instances of them being observed, like the image below that was taken from an aircraft in July 1994.
  2. Thundersnow is a weather phenomenon in which you have thunder, lightning and snow falling as the primary precipitation, instead of rain or hail. It is very rare in the UK, but some of us have claimed to have seen it... Personally, I've seen thundersnow only once. On the evening of 25 January 2013, I saw a huge flash of light and then a deep rumble of thunder during a snowstorm, from my home in Manchester. However there was only one lightning strike. There we also some huge snowflakes too, some maybe 5cm in diameter!
  3. On holiday in the wonderful island of Skiathos at the moment. Thunderstorms have been forecast for a while now, on Friday and Saturday. Something striking has appeared on the Euro4 models. They show over 300mm of rain falling on Skiathos in two separate times. Surely this can't be right, is Skiathos in for thunder and how severe will it be...?
  4. Captured this massive thunderstorm over Bolton on the 19th of July Was quite a thrilling lightshow and biggest storm i have seen
