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

Recommended Posts

Wow it's so humid I need a cold front storm

It will pass through as a dry front here in the SE,it will change the atmosphere but an increase in cloud looks to be the frontrunner rather than anything thundery.At its current pace it will move through the capital around 7-8pm.

Going dark already to the south far too early surely.

 

From looking at the live lightning I think you could be in for a direct hit, It's heading North now rather than NNE.

The cell just south of Swindon has really picked up over the last 10 mins, becoming quite a potent little beast looking at things.

very dark skies to my northwest recently (albeit no thunder or lightning), but here nothing much.. I could see heavy rainfall streaming across the sky to be southwest.. you could literally see it being blown but it must have evaporated here as nothing landed, and it's still dry. 

 

I suspect that's it as the skies to the south here are quite stable.

I can see lightning in 2 directions (Annesley way and Pinxton way) and hear thunder in the distance. This is huge.

Great shot there. Watched that cell grow to the east of my location, ten miles or so away and then move north. Could become severe/sup.

 

Edit: Just looked at that again, overshooting top??? What do people think, developing supercell?? It looks nice on radar.

Atmosphere has suddenly changed round here. Temperature has risen to 26.5'c and the cloud development is explosive, you can see Cumulus change to Towering Cumulus and then Cumulus Congestus with the naked eye, very impressive to see.

lol I wonder how far this storm will track north??? Any chance of it reaching scotland or the north sea lol. Could be one of the longest tracking storms we have ever followed through the british isles.

Bodes well for me then I guess, lets hope it doesn't die out.

Slight shift to the north west first signs it's hitting the Sheffield shield with a slight weakening.

      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.
