Spanish plume anyone? Storm and convective discussion 17th July Onwards

Recommended Posts

The far east of Sheffield may get some action in a bit.

On satellite it looks like cloud has cleared around and to the west of the capital with temperatures there at 25c and rising. If a storm can fire in this area it will take advantage of very high CAPE and other parameters which could allow a severe thunderstorm to develop and push north. Also, the storms around Wiltshire could begin to attain severe characteristics as they spread north.

Ha ha Shane well its about time us Bristol lot got our share we've had to wait months for something.

Must admit it does feel good that we're getting storms and peeps who have had there fair share of storms already this year are not.

Not meant in a horrible way but you know where I'm coming from.

Hopefully the ones who have missed out so far do get something eventually.

Good luck.

More activity being detected from the cell South of Bristol so a direct hit possible here? Although not as much as what is happening towards Swindon...wow!

Unfortunatly the cloud clearance is looking temporary here in the SE,a decaying piece of cr*p in the channel just off Brighton is throwing another cloud sheet across us here! You couldn't make it up...

I just hope that the intense storms I have seen over the last 18 hours hasn't affected my love and excitement of the more ordinary variety. 

 

Anyone else worry about this ?

Had high hopes here about half hour ago as the sun was starting to break through and could feel it getting warmer but now its back cloudy again and seems to be getting thicker not clearing

I really want to feel the full impact of this humidity this afternoon. I'm hoping this cloud will clear to let the sun out for an hour!

Wiltshire storm system has taken a distinct rightward movement in the last 30 mins, more evident on the lightning charts. If it moves towards the areas with high cape values it's going to become a monster.

Todays turned into an absolutely putrid day more reminiscent of early November than July. No sun so far, light rain before and now we don't even have that! Just a constant grey layer of murk that is keeping temps down and killing off any chance of any activity. Currently only nudging 18c.

Was expecting a lot more than this for here today. Apart from the lightning in the early hours this morning theres been nothing but grey sky and showers. Not looking good so far.

Seems not to have affected the ardour of the Shermanator for UK storms. Paul is probably the most qualified on here to comment I feel. He was out and about last night on the South Coast taking piccies of what our French cousins are giving us by way of cast-offs.

 

This should set your mind at ease....

Clear view of the storm just west of here, and it's definitely rotating. Never seen anything like it!

I think that Wiltshire Lightning system will go north to the north-west. I hope it will grow further and gets here in the north-west. I think Birmingham urban heat will help it to grow further and stay in the game.

      Storm & Convective Forecast

      Issued 2018-08-06 21:33:50
      Valid: 07/08/2018 00z to 08/08/2018 00z
      THUNDERSTORM OUTLOOK - TUESDAY 7TH AUGUST 2018
      Synopsis
      North Atlantic upper trough will begin to amplify S and SE across the far west of Britain during Tuesday, with a strengthening upper flow across the UK – as SWly jet stream shifts S and E across the UK. Ahead of the jet streak, a weak surface cold front will progress slowly east, to lie North York Moors - West Sussex by 00z Weds. A very hot, humid and increasingly unstable airmass ahead of the cold front across SE England and East Anglia is forecast to destabilise and produce thunderstorms in the evening here before the front clears through and introduces cooler and more stable air.
      … SE ENGLAND and E ANGLIA …
      Surface-based CAPE will build up through the day due to surface heating of humid plume in conjunction with lapse rates steepening in association with advection north of EML (elevated mixed layer) aloft. However, this surface instability is likely to remain capped. However, a shortwave in the strengthening flow aloft will move NE from Bay of Biscay area in the morning crossing NW France in the afternoon. The increased lift by the shortwave along NW edge of hot and humid plume over France and SE UK combined with increasing mid-level instability as dry air intrusion punches NE overlapping plume, is forecast by many models to break out thunderstorms across Brittany and Normandy by early evening, before spreading / expanding NE across SE England then East Anglia through the evening.
      Thunderstorms are likely to be elevated, though 40-50 knots of 0-6km shear forecast will allow storm organisation into clusters, perhaps even an MCS passing over parts of Kent and eastern E Anglia, so there is potential for strong storms that may bring locally intense downpours leading to flash-flooding, isolated hail, strong wind gusts and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. These storms should clear away NE into the North Sea after midnight.

      A new thread for all things convective around the UK going into the summer of 2018.
      Old thread here:
      Convective weather relating to Europe should go into here:
      A chance of a few thunderstorms this week with central and southern parts of England and Wales looking most at risk. Although Monday is now moving into the reliable timeframe it is still too early to discuss specifics for the week as a whole. It is likely though that this week will provide some thundery showers or storms for a few of us. An easterly flow will probably favour more western areas for home grown storms, but elevated storms from the continent could also affect southern and south-eastern areas at times.
