Convective/Storm Discussion Thread - 8th July onwards

Recommended Posts

I'm staying in Bristol for now.

If I need to chase I'm thinking it won't be too far from home. Channel is looking tasty.

Just on the edge here, can see constant lightning  but no rain or thunder

Can confirm heat lightning here right now, which is lightning too far away for the thunder to be heard.

Its to my South, Southeast with loads of intra-cloud strikes in a nice orange coloured top of a cumulonimbus.

Going to go outside and investigate, definitely staying up tonight now as I reckon that trough is kicking things off.

Not sure whether to go for that or wait till later and hope the stuff in the channel can make it's way to me hmmmm

Just hoping as that trough to the South of the UK tracks further North-Eastwards, it'll carry storms further North/North-East with it. Would save having to travel (and I suppose as longs we don't end up over any gaps, lol)

That mass on the radar looks evil going up through reading! I'm still near cirencester waiting to see if storms kick off to my south. This current system may well take all the mid level juice prog'd for my area, but I'll keep watching!

That mass on the radar over Reading was indeed impressive. Nearly 40mm of rain in the last hour and only just subsiding, with lightning still visible to our NE. Best thunderstorm here in ages.

Almost a carbon copy of the evening of 3rd July 2015! Exactly the same conditions here now, not feeling that thundery and a ENE wind, only to give way to one of the best lightning storms I've witnessed in the last decade, if not, the best! 

Oddly enough we didn't get much in the way of a show here, it all passed to the south. Two weeks later it was a different story :D

Is it just me or do other people's brains create false flashes when staring at a dark sky waiting for lightning?

I always have it in my head that once a storm has passed, then thats it. But look at the channel!

The movement of that MCV is really impressive, almost like a low pressure system if you run the annimation

Looks like it has its own circulation the storm system NW of London ... interesting! A MCV indeed.

certainly to far east here for any storms this time around, but after seeing pics on the news i guess that might not be a bad thing, to people who do catch a storm stay safe, these look like they are going to be damaging.

I'm hoping we get some heat lightning with this storm in the South atm as we did back in 2015. Just depends on whether it'll get close enough

I just wish it would grow this way too, but also that it doesn't do what happened in Cornwall again.
