Recommended Posts

Just started recording video as strike came down. Got a great rumble of thunder from it but just missed the strike. Almost perfect timing.

What great weather!

I find we often do quite well around the Bristol Channel in these sort of setups - nothing plumetastic but interesting to see these sharp thundery showers crop up quickly.

There be lightning in them clouds this evening! Saw a few flashes from a CB over the Severn Estuary on my drive down the M5 about half an hour ago.

I drove down the M5 this morning as the squall line passed over. I have rarely driven in rain like it. Even at 25mph I couldn't see where I was going and all the traffic virtually stopped - bit scary on a motorway as you never know what will ram you from behind.

Had a very similar experience on September 14th 2015 - unbelievably heavy rain no the M5 - the Avonmouth bridge was certainly not fun being able to see nothing with a buffering wind.

Stunning night last night, the loudest brightest flash of thunder & lightning I've ever seen & heard, this occurred around 7.30pm. Then around 2am this morning woke to more thunder & lightning + an epic hail storm. Everywhere was covered in hail & it was still there this morning.

Good start to this Winter & hey, the best thunderstorm I've had for many a year - crazy it came at the back end of Autumn.

Traumatised to say the least.. I decided yesterday afternoon at an hour before sunset to take a walk down to the beach and saw what looked from the angle i viewed it from, a light short shower once I was down there. I decided to stay down at the beach and wait it out and regret it alot! The rain kept on battering me for a good half hour straight very heavily in i think what might be some of the most gusty wind I have ever experienced whilst outside myself. The sand was just picked up and lifted by the wind and some quite large rocks the size of one of my hands were slowly blowing up the beach whilst I struggled to stand up at all.. Definitely going to check the radar next time I decided to pop out to an exposed area for a walk even when its completely blue sky above me and we aren't forecasted for anything..

 Could well have been a +CG strike. Quite common during short lived or mature  cells.

Day 1 Convective Outlook

VALID 06:00 UTC Sat 19 Nov 2016 - 05:59 UTC Sun 20 Nov 2016

ISSUED 11:30 UTC Sat 19 Nov 2016

ISSUED BY: Dan

Cold air aloft atop seasonably warm SSTs will generate numerous showers along west-facing parts of Britain and Ireland on Saturday, perhaps with some sporadic, but fairly isolated, lightning. Some small hail and gusty winds are possible from the most intense showers, with snow on high ground.

Attention on Saturday night then turns to southern Britain as a deep area of low pressure approaches, bringing widespread precipitation envelope, and strong gradient winds through the English Channel and neighbouring coastal counties. During the early hours of Sunday, behind the main pulse of dynamic rain, squally showers are likely to develop, driving inland across southern coastal counties. The environment looks conducive to strong gusts of wind from the most intense showers, with perhaps a tornado - similar setups in the past have produced tornadoes, the most prone areas tending to be the coastline of the Isle of Wight/Hampshire eastwards to East Sussex. Some lightning will be possible with this activity.
