more storms brewing either side of the english channel, plus an MCS in the making over western France that should give us a show heading towards dawn/breakfast time if it holds together

Best news I've heard all year!!

 

Its all starting to move NW now!

The entire main system is going to skim just to the west of here, very frustratingly.

First rumbles here in South manchester, not sure if it will amount to anything. Dry, no lighting thus far.

It's wierd they're not showing up on the lightning detector. They must all be in-cloud strikes.

It sounded quite distant from here. Let's hope there's more than the radar is showing.

ok, that multicell cluster is starting to push away to the north now, lightning and thunder on the wane....eyes now down south as more elevated convection is coming ashore into Dorset with another cluster of storms developing on the Brest Peninsular.....behind that is an developing mesoscale system developing to the south of Rennes in western France

Got back in dronfield shortly after 1am, and we have a nice storm of our own now. Not as active as the southern ones but reasonably frequent lightning and lovely deep rumbles of thunder. Very misty and humid out there.

      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.
