Convective/Storm Discussion for 06/0614 - 07-06-14


Recommended Posts

Was just a small cell that clipped us with its western edge, there was a bigger one to the west of me. I'm still in Norwich and haven't ventured out yet. Wasn't expecting that little burst so early so it's a bonus.

 

Wind started to gust and even more so when the rain started. a few rumbles of thunder heard, 2 reasonably close and one flash of lightning seen. Rain has just started again so it isn't finished just yet although no thunder for the last 15 mins or so.

 

More precip moving towards us and I think I will venture out at that point to see if there still is a gust front.

The CAPE is not going to be high enough to strengthen storms, perhaps in the East there will be decent CAPE values. Central / Northern England probably have seen the last of storms, Eastern England has better chances.

Sitting tight till at least 11:30 then il make a decision on where to head, as others have pointed out, its all about nowcasting at this stage!

 

I still believe that anywhere in East Midlands, South Yorks, Linconshire is prime for a storm in the afternoon

Firstly that's your fault for getting your hopes up and secondly If your going to be pxxxed off, do it in the no storm thread not here. And just to mention, I haven't seen a good storm in about 15 years ;)

There was a line of storms moving towards us this morning, but it split and we fell inside the split - bloody typical.

But it looks like we're in the hotspot this afternoon for a change, so lets hope the models hold up!

Hi all,

Nothing at all of substance some heavy rain nought else. Very disappointed. I know it's only early but for London I think we are just a tad too far south, which is most infuraiting as we are under good cape. That PPN.. Has pushed north of a London and has intensified. It's like having a larger surface area, more likely to deliver the goods. Still hopeful not as optimistic :)

Had quite a lot of trouble logging in this Morning.

The left split was better but I can't say I didn't see or hear anything now though :) I could have gone out to meet them but was not expecting anything until a bit later.

 

However it isn't game over yet so chin up people!

I'm pretty happy with how this is developing, I think the expectation for today was quite high. It is, however, 11am, we have a good few hours of heating potential to go yet, and with the rain many of us have just had, plenty of moisture in a reasonably unstable environment. Absolutely by no means a bust yet.

Well I was right the Bristol gap returned the storm shield did its job and got absolutely nothing again.

Yes you were. That's twice in the last few weeks with 2 decent storms.
