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

Recommended Posts

When's mother nature going to let us have it?????? I'm getting sleepy!

I reckon at least 4 hours to reach London so I would head to bed and set an alarm if I was you. Here I should get it about 2 hours earlier. I HOPE!

Looks like its about to hit the Channel and it's growing East-West all the time. Will this turn into an MCS that will kill our chances of decent convection on the morrow. We shall see in the morning.

Mesoscale convective system,  in basic terms,  organised system of thunderstorms. They usually leave residual cloud after they die out which hinders development the next day.

First strike in the Channel below Jersey!

Hi CF, how are you?  All good I hope, as much as I want to stay up I'm struggling so will keep the curtains and windows open and set the alarm for a couple of hours time :-)

Hi, I am doing good thanks. I reckon you stand a better chance of seeing something before me. It doesn't seem to be heading east very fast.

[email protected] want to quickly introduce myself in the Forum after lurking for many years, My name is Ralph and I live 2 places: either in Germany in Constance (Lake Constance) or in Mytchett, Surrey. My job takes me back and forth between UK and Germany quite a couple of times every year. The outlook for the next hours looks more promising than anything thats been around this year, and the reason I posted is to answer a very valid  question Buckster asked a short while ago, about why that Storm by Nantes split:The Nantes storm was a supercell and underwent a cell split into 2 supercell storms, the rotating updraft gets buckled upward like an inverted "U", separates at the top and then there are two separate updrafts, one rotating in a clockwise manner and number two anticlockwise. On the northern hemisphere the clockwise rotating supercell starts drifting off course to the right and is called a "right mover" The anticlockwise rotating "left mover" cell has to fight against the coriolis force, which eventually weakens it and it dies. Right movers are the cells to watch out for. Hope this helps.cheers Ralph

A huge welcome to NW! A great post to start, told you all a SUPERCELL ;) I'm a fast learner haha :D that did not like any normal cell shown by the size and intensity. It spruced out from no where.

Is the right moving supercell in France showing shapes of a bow echo?

In all honesty, that storm is travelling towards London.

That storm ain't going to survive the Channel crossing, in my books, as I would imagine its well rooted into the boundary layer now. I've highlighted the area I'm watching most in red. I may be wrong however, but that's how I see it...
