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


Recommended Posts

What an absolutely horrible day. Unbelievably hot and humid, just nothing in the air. Already had a few rumbles about 20 minutes back. Had a couple in the night, luckily didn't get smashed like most people close by in the night. Incredibly that was just the stuff that wasn't hardly forecast too, it'll just be the starter for the main course and dessert that's to come over Friday/Saturday  :wallbash:

This explosion here is what we like!  

New strikes appearing in the channel peeps ahead of MCS 2 - active very quickly too

A couple more pictures  This part was rotating crazily A VERY close lightning strike (amazing picture, I know lol) And this one... I am so annoyed that it went wrong!

well after a bit of sunshine, things now very cloudy again, just not getting the energy or humidity, the storms will just die before they get here

Any one have any good high spots in the east midlands to watch these storms? I was thinking Breedon on the Hill church but I dont know if that is too exposed to go and watch thunderstorms from?

If last night taught us anything, it's that several days of stressing about model outcomes is a complete waste of time and energy. 

 

Didn't get a direct hit here but I did enjoy several hours of spectacular lightning in the distance. It wasn't in any of the forecasts.

local met office forecast for my postcode is sunny and 31c at this rate we will be lucky to hit 21c, so cloudy and brezzy, and getting darker, and now raining again.

This has surprised me. I expected a few light showers followed by hot sunshine, currently I have lightning and thunder. The knock on effect is I doubt we shall reach the predicted temps unless these storms pass through quickly.

 

I think this is our 7th or 8th storm this summer. Can any other Peterborough members confirm the number?

Normal Thundery weather. Odd light shower and drizzle cool and cloudy at the moment. Sheffield Shield in full hyper drive shredding mode. Storms about but fizzling out as soon as they approach us.

Thunder to the east of Derby with very threatening skies.Its a battle between the showers and sun at the moment with the showers winning.Feeling very muggy as well.

We both need something to flare up S of us for a good and unexpected direct hit :D

Chin up sparky we already have thunder and lightning here in market deeping accompanied by that light rain. Incredibly humid feel.

have packed the tripod and camera away, rain getting heavier, still a fresh feel to things outside today, looking out peterborough way things do look alot darker, i might be able to hear the thunder Teits has got.

well this has killed the heat and humidity, heavy rain, no thunder, no lightening, no sunshine, all things needed to aid the storms.

Wow, Looking at the Sat24 today, Looks like zero chance for sunshine around here today.

 

I hope something pops up later down south.

 

Last nights storm was something else.

Flashes every 5 to 6 seconds. Constant rumbling. 1 in 10 was CG strikes however most was IC.

The weather is just so cruel at times  :diablo:

 

Those lucky sods in the south who saw some brilliant lightning displays last night should get an even bigger/more dramatcic serving tonight, before round 3 comes up saturday afternoon/evening!!!

 

While us in the north are left to fight for scraps. I'm half tempted to drive down to the south and book a hotel so I don't miss out lol.

GFS 06z is tastey. Must get some lightning shots with the SLR but its so convenient shooting video from your phone and capturing stills!

 

What a great period this is!

Woken up around 3.00am with a massive strike, just managed to get a couple of shots before it died out. Been rumbling on for most of the morning here. Looking forward to the main event later!

Thankfully we have a bit of sunshine here poking through, but hard to see anything develop with all this crappy cloud around.

 

 

I suppose our threat of big storms has and always will come down to home grown ones, the sort where there is little wind and they develop slap bang over you.
