    Do have to love the April showers, fairly low topped CB's with the massive over hanging Mamma on the back end and heavy cold rain is what I tend to remember of them, certainly is exciting as you can tell that just a few months time we will be looking for the big CB's in the summer time heat.

    Can't wait! I've had more than enough of Winter now. Let's just hope this Summer is more thundery than the least two, not just wet.

    I have to admit I've had my snow fix this winter but now I am starting to look forward to the storm season, starting with the USA trip to the US, then our shot at storms that usually peaks in July time, then the tropics really start to ramp up!

    If anything from May-October is probably even better then the winter period for me, because usually there is plenty going on in this period.

    But what sort of storms will we be getting?

    The last 2 years have provided trough/cold frontal storms as happened on 9 August last year and on, I think, an August afternoon in 2007 too. Pretty interesting to watch develop and slowly move through even if not spectacular lightning-wise.

    I think we in this region need home grown set ups like 9 May last year which provided a spectacle for the Wiltshire/Bath/Bristol region OR slowly breaking down heatwaves with trailing cold fronts a la 24 June 2005 OR unstable Spanish plume type events which have been all too negligible in the last few years.

    I find storms a double edged sword http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif . It's great in the daytime to see the cloud structures but the lightning isn't as spectacular. But at night the lightning is stunning however the cloud structures remain largely hidden, unless you get lucky with frequent sheet/strobe like lightning.

    Andy, enjoying seeing some structure to this afternoon's slowly breaking cloud http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif .

    Storm season does start now in my books! Hopefully if we can get some unsettled weather next week we can see some action! Still a bit early for a southerly plume to bring some storms, but we can get some hefty showers on a unstable flow from the west or north. http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif

    I wreckon it may well be into May before we are to see a decent plume.

    However, who knows, this year we may some real decent severe outbreaks.

    Decent thunderstorms have been unfortunately in very short supply in Ireland over the past few years.

    Fingers crossed. http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif

    It has been a long time since I have seen a good storm, hopefully this will be a good summer, especially for those going on the US storm chase. :)

    Lol, no I mustn't complain really because we do get our fair share of imports here. But last summer is a long time ago now!

    Bring on the bubbling clouds! :)

    Guest North Sea Snow Convection

    Last summer wasn't as good for storms as 2007 - which was an amazing one for me. Not just the awesome supercell in July of that year, but there were loads of other storms as well in all three summer months. There were continental import one's, there were homegrown thundery downpours, and then there were polar northerly one's as well.

    So a repeat of that would be very welcome! :D

    Looking possible for some thundery showers this week - I'd say Wednesday & Thursday have the potential.

    You'll be seeing your fair share on the Storm Chase :D !

    Dave, lest ye not forget Friday 9 May last year :) - some people on here (not me!) didn't even get one storm last year!

    9th May was incredible yes, one to be remembered. But you are right, last year was a decent year, just always seems a long time ago after winter!

    Good shout on later in the week though, I agree and there has been some activity about today which I have noted in the convective discussion thread.
