Convective Storm/Discussion thread - 02/09/16 onwards

Recommended Posts

People surprised by the storms intensities?

I am still sat on a train melting like a snow cone in Phoenix (pop quiz - - what film is that from!!??) thanks to the inevitable chaos caused by the immense heat! Absolutely steaming down here which in mid September which much fresher air masses trying to establish from the west is only going to result one way...rampant storms. I suspect in these will not be the last storms in the next few days, albeit my odds here in the SE remaining low. 

Large cluster of storms rampaging North across France so will be interesting where they head and if they maintain puff to reach our shores. 

Envious of the great pics and vids emerging - enjoy guys, stay safe!!

Standard but that's because it's too far away at the mo, radar looking good 

Problem is though from the radar it looks like it's losing its intensity now - it's on a near perfect track to hit it's sods law lol

That was an EPIC storm and still flashing away to the north,it matched that one early July last year when i was on woodhead but my battery on the cam was flat,this made up for it big time

i have a busy time of it uploading several clips and searching the numerous stills from hundreds of lightning strikes,i will upload probably tomorrow now as it is getting a bit late(up at 5am)

it's been a long wait for this spectacle and will be memorable,aaarrrhhh!!!:yahoo::D

Just been reading an interesting article further to a conversation I had with a friend in the west coast of France a few hours earlier who alerted me to this discussion amongst himself and fellow weather followers in France, what do people make of this? (it is in french but i should have posted the google translate version). The probabilities are slim but interesting enough just that it is being discussed by a few meteorologists!

Should be still decent though and it's a night storm

Yeah - It's been a good day for many across the UK, who love storms. I finally managed a direct hit mid-morning, I'd have taken one in the dark though! 
Not surprisingly, I missed out on any heat today, temperatures were very suppressed, but i'd take a storm over that anyway. It does look likely that we'll get some heat anyway - warmer tomorrow, warmer still on Thursday, with another possibility of storms for some as well.

Thought I'd look west from here east of Exeter through several 'clicks' on blitzortung from the storms in the Irish Sea north of West Cornwall, didn't see any from most but the last one I did see a flash from!

Heading down that way to arrive near Angouleme on Thursday lunchtime and there have been suggestions of a very small but potent low pressure area for some time. Interestingly there was something very similar in August last year that caused quite a bit of damage inland. Certainly violent storms there at present.

Nothing of interest storm wise for us here but I'm also looking at North West France wondering if the mass of storms could head into southern England

The rate our summer is going I would expect a 'Medicane' scenario to produce intense thunderstorms widely across ... the Shetlands

Well that was the most incredible storm! Only had to drive half an hour to the Peaks for a good view and boy did it deliver! Insane lightning, thunder, rain, hail, winds passing right overhead. Plenty of people spectating as the storm cleared, too. What an evening! :yahoo: Now to sort through piccies and video :D

Some bitty showers flaring up behind the behemoth. Shows there's still some instability.

i take back what what I said earlier about the storms dying as they hit the north west ,  they pepped up ,  skirted with the manchester storm here, but i drove down the A6 and parked up in swinton area, dont usually do chases but  OMG the lightning was insane,  explosive CG dropping all around , I was worried about being to close to a tree and promptly moved, this almost equalled the big storm at the begining of july last year ,  but this seemed to have more cg type strikes,  so was better in that respect,   excellent storm

you've got to just love google translating this article which gives such endearing terms as 'digging' storms with 'warm hearts' which at the the same time are 'virulent'....lol
