    Damn, looks like the cell heading for London has died. Sky still ominously dark though, so maybe the heat of the city will revive it! *fingers crossed*

    If anyone wanted to know what a mackerel sky was but was too afraid to ask, I gift you an example for free.

    And YES that is mammatus under the anvil of the MCS!!! (Wow...I was only photographing the mackerel sky then noticed the mamma)

    Very angry skies to the south here in Croydon, just seen a flash of lightning across the sky too, but strangely no thunder.

    Hi there

    I don't normally post but I'm begging for an answer. I have a son with down syndrome who gets extremely nervous with thunder and lightning.

    So I can prepare him could anyone please tell me if Stokenchurch (6 miles west of High Wycombe?) Is likely to get anything tonight.

    I appreciate any help in advance.

    Thank you

    Of particular concern are areas of reduced vertical mixing, which allow a moisture accumulation and the maintenance of enhanced low-level shear and helicity. This can be expected along the sea breeze front in Northern France and Belgium, and in general in Eastern England, where warm air advection re-intensifies on the forward flank of a weak surface low which is forecast to track from Northwestern France (06 UTC) into Northern England (18 UTC). If diurnal heating and/or the lift impulse by outflow boundaries suffice to break the capping inversion in these regions, particularly well-organized supercells could spawn a few tornadoes, possibly even including a strong one. However, mesoscale developments need to be awaited before the degree of this threat can further be specified.
    Despite remaining uncertainties due to downstream effects of overnight's vigorous storms, a level 2 seems to be warranted.
