  1. As I'm sure you're aware, lightning bolts can display a wide variety of colours ranging from lilac, white and blue, to even more exotic colours like yellow, orange and even green. There are many causes for this wide variety of colours. This ranges from the temperature of the lightning to atmospheric and environmental conditions, as mentioned below: Lilac/purple lightning Lilac or purple-tinted lightning is usually the most commonly observed colour. It is often caused by precipitation, so the observation of it most likely means that the thunderstorm generating it will be a high-precipitation storm. Lilac lightning is also rumoured to produce louder thunder, though this is disputed. Blue lightning Blue lightning bolts tend to be the hottest lightning bolts to occur on earth. They are also some of the more commonly observed colours (after lilac lightning). Atmospheric-wise, they maybe caused by small amounts of dust in the atmosphere. This is because these dust particles scatter the light coming from the lightning, in a similar way to how molecules in the atmosphere scatter the sun's light, making the sky also look blue. White lightning The light radiated by virtually all lightning bolts is white. This means that to observe it, the air must be free of pollutants and dust which can scatter and refract light - so essentially you're seeing the lightning with very little interference from the atmosphere. White lightning is also the some of the hottest lightning that occurs on earth (after blue lightning). Yellow lightning Yellow lightning bolts are much more uncommon and tend to be cooler than blue, white and lilac lightning bolts are. They also tend to be indicative of dry thunderstorms, so the presence of yellow-tinted lightning could mean that an approaching thunderstorm is a low-precipitation storm. Other colours Other colours of lightning have also been reported. Orange and red lightning has been observed and these bolts tend to be some of the coldest lightning. These colours also tend to be observed near the base of the lightning, as it strikes the ground. Green-tinted lightning is also occasionally seen, and this may be caused by the lightning heating up certain gases in the air, giving it a greenish tint. Well that was a bit of fulminology for you there. I hope you stuck with it, and thanks for reading.
  2. Well might as well get the ball rolling early this year. No storms today.

  6. Hi everyone I was on Tour 3 2017 and recorded daily videos for my YouTube channel which is Travel Related. Take a look for an insight into an amazing 10 days. Day 8 Amarillo - speechless! This is a compilation of all the intros - The full playlist is here - Storm Chasing Playlist:
  7. I'm one of those people who can feel so completely alive durng a thunderstorm but find them incredibly relaxing too. I know that people finding storms relaxin and using the sounds as sleep aids is incredibly common and I was wondering if anyone knew the science behind it?
  8. I found a satellite image of a recent UK storm while looking through a slide show of photos on the Daily Express online, I could not but notice what appears to be a face. Below is an image copy drawn on to indicate / show viewers the storm face, although it should spring out at you though not to obvious as why highlighted (top left of photo near to Scotland) For the article and satellite the image: http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/629617/floods-north-england-weather-climate-change-natural-disaster (photo slideshow near bottom of page it's in there)

  12. Here's a few pics from the storm on the 14th. Cape Clear is an island off the south Cork coast and is the most southerly inhabited place in Ireland. Twas difficult to stand straight at times and I lost count of the number of shocks I got from electric fences! It was a few hours before the worst of the winds, but I still recorded a gust of over 110km/h with mini handheld weather station I have attached to my bag.
  13. Hello everyone and welcome! As we go head first into the depths of the start of this winter there seems to be a storm on the semi-reliable (or whatever you want to call it) time-frame. At the moment the strongest winds looks like to hit Scotland and some of the western coasts of England. (According to the gfs 12z run) This is 8 days out through so however because its not in the reliable time frame just yet major changes are expected at the moment becuase i think we know what models like to do. For extreme fans this might be a good storm to check out (if it happens)
  14. We are now heading into spring and later summer, which means that the thundery showers and thunderstorms will soon be developing. Use this thread to post your videos and images from thunderstorms in the UK and they can be from this year, or any other year you wish! I'll get us started. This was a storm that was recorded on November 9, 2013.
  15. Some models are picking up that Bertha is set to hit the UK around the end of the weekend or next Monday. However the models are going to a massive storm all the way to a no event happing. So really we shouldn't make predications until at least Friday. Before that through there will be wet weather to do deal with for the weekend. So what do you think will happen? Note:The only reason why I have done this is because the Bertha could become a dangerous or big event,so it stands out with its own thread/topic.
  16. Captured this massive thunderstorm over Bolton on the 19th of July Was quite a thrilling lightshow and biggest storm i have seen
