    Popped out with the camera after finishing work yesterday at 5:45pm. Got onto the storm which passed through Malton when it was near Sledmere in the Yorkshire Wolds. Visually, it appeared supercellula

    A few shots of the storm tonight using iLightningCam app.

    BIG storm went over here earlier, only just got power back on. Trees down and roads flooded in the Malton area, never seen anything quite like it, absolute carnage. Unfortunately my weather stati

    Took some time to appear but I believe this is the trough now starting to form with vertical placement of the cells and more of a easterly movement in them. Wind-vectors shows a convergence taking place over Cheshire into Mersyside aswell which is indicative of it. Going to be watching this over the next hour and see what happens further north and south.

    That finger of preciptation running from Cumbria back towards Dublin must be some kind of trough.

    It's really trying soooooo hard but failing to deliver. There has been plenty of Ac Cas and a cell tried to form but just left a heavy shower. I'm so keeping fingers crossed. What's the more experienced weather bods think of this sky round here for potential?

    It's beginning to look like it, it's such an elusive feature for now that until convective initiation along the line begins will it become more evident.

    Not that warm here: pleasant and still so should get a good night's sleep. Last night was fine too. Diddly squat here so far and not holding my breath....

    I can see that cloud to my north west from Tamworth so looking towards your location. I said to my wife thats showing the instability around. She disappointed that we are not currently looking at cooling storms!

    What I'm thinking is, that band of showers (south east ireland ~ cumbria) is going to ignite once that trigger currently over southern scotland pushes further south! And we are going to get a conveyer belt of storms, torrential precipitation pushing further south on the radar, but locally feeding in from the south west if ya know what I mean. Just wait n see!!   If it's like this over scotland with their  pitiful energy available, just and wait and see what happens to us!!

    A funny day with cloud here today. A bit of Altocumulus passed over quickly around midday, then some little clouds of cumulus at tea time and now a big dark cloud and a lot of cirrus to the north east with a bit of virga. A sign of things to come?

    Isn't it annoying when good storms appear in areas where they aren't supposed to? :rolleyes:

    Thought I'd share this with you. I took some steaks out of the freezer about 10-15 mins ago. Just popped back in the kitchen and there is a thick frost on them (they were crystal clear when I took them out). That just gives a wee idea of how insanely humid it has become. Saying there's some moisture in the air is like saying molten lava is tepid.

    In echo of AJ's post earlier, my frosty steaks should reassure enough that the atmosphere is primed and ready for action :rofl:

    To be fair MetO have the borders up to Edinburgh under a warning so not that surprising.  I am just waiting on some form of trigger!

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
