What makes it weird is it's all coming out of the storm.

Outflow? Also The surface and low level winds are backed more than higher up.

My piece de resistance: (drumroll please...)  

I've just been going through my phones photos from yesterday. Apart from the two oversized bras on next door's washing, this popped up: Finally got one!!

From what I understand, the current isolated storm cells have developed on a convergence wave tied into the circulation of the depression in Biscay. This "wave" will rotate and traverse slo

Looking at the extended skew-t, it suggests there will be quite a strong cap to erode, from around 940 to 900mb, probably why the hi-res models show absolutely zilch in terms of precip.

Aye. GFS showing some slight convergence of surface winds and, given orographic forcing from the peaks, I can see where the GFS is coming from but I doubt it'll be enough

Under the developing storm clouds going every direction brilliant to watch lightning none stop thunder none stop just one hell of a storm if you're under it. Closest to a storm this year.

Fresh strikes erupting around S Cornwall/Devon now. :)

Not looking bad right down in the far west of Cornwall is it!

South Hams just doesn't look like it's going to get lucky today, but that is so often the way. We've missed out both ways today - too far west earlier this morning, and too far east now lol. Still time though!

I've got a feeling that there's been a issue with the latest Netweather SR update from 6z to 12z, 6z almost perfectly in line with predicting the area of storms, yet now predicts a large storm to be building in the channel in an hour or so? And removes the storm up North completely?

Still odd lightning flash and some thunder even though rain band has moved away and the intense band is now miles away.

Big flash your way then, deep rumble

Apparently the water is waist deep in parts of Manchester City centre so plenty flash flooding about - anyone know the strike rate on this thing now?

Peaked at 800 per minute for us now showing 330 per minute as it moves away.

Certainly can't complain about that :D countless lightning-strikes (I lost count after 56) power went out briefly, time to see what damage reports filter out from that. There was definite rotation at times looking SW, when the main-line of lightning came up from the south,

seems to have become a right mover that one near Sheffield and Barnsley. Any confirmation of surface based activity?? I can see the top of it from Cambs too!! 

I wouldn't be surprised if there was due to the way the clouds were moving.
