    So as things stand you cannot comment if you think you are not going to get storms. Not allowed to comment if Statistically your area always does pretty poor concerning storms...Only allowed to comment to put other people down when they voice their opinions...... ballarcks to that

     

    That's not the case at all and you know very well it isn't. 

     

    If people have an issue with the moderating or how the forum is being run, please contact a team member via PM and we'll be happy to discuss it away from the thread.

    Anything could happen anywhere in the above areas. "                 :good: 

     

    Thats put the whole situation in a nutshell, with emphasis on "could" and "anywhere"   The model outputs are running around in circles ATM, now it looks like quite some action for the west midlands in the early morning hours for a change, and I will await the last run before the event to see how it is NOT going to take place! (this is especially referring to GFS

    We wait and see....

    Surely the Bristol Shield won't be able to hold that out. Can't wait for the 12z's!

    If the Bristol shield can deflect that lot I'm moving house!

    Supacell - where are you thinking of as a good starting point tonight? I'm unsure of good viewing spots. I don't want to be off some random motorway exit with an obstructed view lol

    Right on cue the forum begins to get heated. I expect ESTOFAX to up to a level 3 on the back of this

    If this does go east as Estofex state, does that mean it's game over for the west as the plume will probably have shifted eastwards?It's only about 23c here with 'claggy' looking skies. There's a decent breeze also. It's her humid, but not as much as it could be with the sun out.EDIT: the sun has just come out the first time in a good 4-5 hours.

    Same here, conditions are nowhere near what was forecast in terms of heat. 22 as opposed to 27/28. Thoroughly overcast, though it was sunnier at lunchtime and the satellite shows clearer skies not too far off. Not expecting any storms, this is Manchester after all, maybe some light rain tomorrow. It's a shame, cos my garden is getting quite dried up.

    @ Reevesie1: Yes, but they probably are unsure as to where to position it, hence the delay, they are probably awaiting the last model run before the event and then

    draw serious conclusions from the SECOND LAST one :wink:

    A mix of high res modelling broadly signals the same thing, a cluster of thunderstorms entering the UK around the IOW area and spreading throughout C/S England;

    Nor am I convinced they're saying the same thing.Different times and different shaped storms there.

    Storm & Convective Forecast

    Posted Imageconvmap_180714.png

     

    Issued 2014-07-18 14:37:16

    Valid: 18/07/2014 1200z to 19/07/2014

     

    THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FORECAST

     

    Synopsis

    Long-wave trough to extending south to west of British Isles and into Iberia remains slow-moving whilst becoming increasingly aligned NW-SE (negatively tilted). A strengthening southerly flow continues to transport, warm, moist and unstable flow north across British Isles. A thundery trough in the upper S'erly flow, that brought morning storms, will continue NE across northern Britain reaching N Scotland by midnight. Another thundery low developing over N France Friday PM will move N into S England by midnight, before spreading north across Midlands and Wales Sat morning.

     

    ... MDT RISK FOR S ENGLAND, E WALES, MIDLANDS, E ANGLIA ...

     

    Plume of very warm and dry air at 850mb, evident on 12z Bordeaux and Trappes (Paris) radiosonde ascents above hot but moist surface airmass advecting north is providing a strong cap (lid) to convection this afternoon across France, though 850mb plume is creating steep lapse rates which combined with high temps approaching the mid 30s degrees C, is likely to yield MLCAPE of 1500-2000 j/kg. Cooling of mid-upper level temps with approach of upper trough to the west and convergence over N and W France is forecast to erode this cap Friday evening.

     

    Model forecasts indicate thunderstorms breaking out this evening across N/W France, already there are storms across W France, which will then track north towards S England tonight. A strengthening southerly jet stream moving up from France and low-to mid level flow backing more SE'erly, as shown on Bordeaux and Trappes ascents, will increase vertical shear - allowing storms to organise upscale into an MCS, which may exhibit bowing line segments on its forward side, bringing the risk of damaging wind gusts, and also one or two supercells could be embedded. Large amounts of MLCAPE and strong directional shear shown by GFS suggests threat of large hail. The storm system moving north across the above areas tonight/Sat morning is also likely to produce frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. PWAT (precipitable water) values of 39mm indicated by GFS are very high- so excessive rainfall and flash flooding are a real threat too. Given the likely organisation of an MCS bringing widespread threat of wind damage, large hail and flash flooding - have issued a MODERATE risk of severe storms.

     

    The situation will be monitored, given storms have still yet to form, with updates possible to the categorical risk of severe weather.

     

    ... IRELAND/N IRELAND, N ENGLAND and S SCOTLAND ...

     

    Isolated storms may continue to occur this afternoon and evening, bringing risk of hail, gusty winds and torrential rain leading to localised flooding. Further storms are likely to reach N England from the south Saturday morning, with risk of hail, frequent cloud to ground lightning, strong wind gusts and localised flooding.

    You jinxed it yesterday saying you were going to get all the storms lol

     

    It's okay. I've fixed it.

    Notice the high quality, realistic graphics used.

     

    Interesting that the GFS weather overview still doesn't have thunderstorms over the UK for tomorrow. It has been like that for the last few consecutive runs.. Strange but undoubtedly hard to believe.

    good to see the cloud over France has a N Easterly direction to it atm. will prob change to  SE direction over SE UK knowing our luck.

     

    Plus a question. Cape  and LI arnt stationary are they?? By that I mean if at 3 oclock the chart has the best over say west london at 5 oclock could the best cape have moved to East London??  IE is the 3 oclock chart just a snapshot at what they think will happen at that precise time ???  Hope it makes sense :)))

    Anyone got an answer to the above ?? Or is it a stoopid question :)

    Enough of the sarky comments... what about the one in the post I replied to . The point I was making is that statistically (feel free to check with the met office) this area does not do well for storms. people have already pointed out that the crud that is left over from the storms last night could scupper any chances for some. It has happened time and time again. Sorry if that pees people off.

    • Atlantic influences and is it going to rain?

      For much of the UK, it has been dry for a while, with occasional heavy downpours bringing month high totals in one day. The harvest is progressing but the jetstream is powering up for the Equinox. Read more here

      Calm start to the week, but Autumn Equinox ushers in gales for the north later in the week

      High pressure builds in across the south first half of this week, bringing fine & dry weather for most. But from mid-week, a strong jet stream arriving will introduce windier and more unsettled conditions in the north, with risk of gales Thursday. Read the full update here
