Not sure there’s that many over there unfortunately. They always seem to get the big storms though. Even when I’ve been there, they’ll often avoid Majorca, but then really ramp up just to the East out to sea and give menorca a direct hit! 

I can only find that one

anyway,new storm near Benidorm,just seen a huge CG.

It looks like the mid Med is taking all the juice but i have found a cam east coast of Sardinia.

A few decent strikes on that one. And loads in the distance. After midnight, I’m still confident of new developments, particularly in the Balearic sea area. That lot marching east towards Sardinia May hit the island later too. Tunisia and Sicily have seen some stonkers today aswell. 

Over the next couple of days, it’ll be Costa Blanca that will see some incredible amounts of rain, and no doubt flash flooding. The local phenomenon named the Gota Fria event is looking likely, which means “cold drop” in Spanish.

In a nutshell, it’s basically a couple of days of continuous monsoon rainfall that impacts the East coast of Spain mostly every year, but some years worse than others, caused by a cut off jet stream lobe that dives down suddenly over 27c waters and entrapped hot air. 2007 saw an exceptional one that caused local devastation in areas such as Javea, Valencia, Almería and Alicante.

Been in Croatia, got back on Tues. Zadar was kind enough to deliver a corking storm on Saturday evening. Unfortunately I've never had to deal with street lighting or scenery during a storm, given that most of my storms in Norfolk are devoid of anything apart from darkness, so it was all a bit hit and miss. When it really ramped up I was driven off the balcony by horizontal rain and very squally winds, suffice to say it was very very noisy. I've included one where it felt like I'd been punched in the chest by a giant (I think I must have stabbed the camera button on my phone by accident, I was swapping from DSLR to a bit of videoing at the time).

Some lightning visible on a couple of Alicante cams. Should be awesome once darkness sets in. 

An absolute monster about to depart the Algerian coast and drift N/NW too. A massive MCS in the making. 

Just seen some epic multiforked lightning on this one!! https://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/espana/comunidad-valenciana/alicante/alicante-playa-almadraba.html

Still a few good ones seen! 

Alicante earlier was utter madness. I wonder what that Algerian MCS is going to do. It looked to be heading straight for the Balearics, but has sort of undergone a bit of eastward shift, just as soon as it hit the coast! At least we aren’t the only ones that happens to then lol!

Yes,i thought that it would re-curve NW but last minute adjustment seems to be shifting NNE,look at that monster though.

I reckon it may well clip the eastern side of Majorca. Alcudia cam possibly a good shout in the small hours of the morning. But I won’t be up unfortunately! I wouldn’t be surprised to see Algiers on weather based news tomorrow by the way. It looked to have taken a direct hit earlier. Could not find any cams there though.

It certainly is picking up now,more so to the right of the cam,i am now sure which way the cam is pointing though,will the lightning encroach from the right?
