After producing all Saturdays storms for Birmingham and then flooding itself before giving Aylesbury a stroboscopic night to remember,  today Northampton decides to sit in the gap in the storms and stay out of the fun.

It was fantastic that day in Aylesbury 🙂

Cor, that storm in Belgium is...half the size of Belgium. I wonder if any will make it across the North Sea?

Well storm wise an instantly forgettable May a month of zero action here. Hopefully June may provide something. Today looks a blank one again.

This storm was intense!! 84 strikes per hour, insane. Widespread Torrential thunderstorms.

Not that long ago since you were laughing at those of us excited about the storm's potential

Dortmund airport webcam showing up the lightning from this storm quite well: https://www.dortmund-airport.com/live-webcam 

Edit: Choose the West-facing webcam, better view.

Was there a lot of IC? I figured there would be a lot of mid-level cloud about too - and the rain was a real pain on Saturday night although I do like driving in heavy downpours 😄 (and stopping usually when it gets too much!)

It was mainly sheet lightning but with some nice IC and CG bolts thrown in too. There was a lot of middle level cloud and also mist and fog. There was no structure visible in the skies but seeing the mist being lit up pink during the evening was an eerie experience. 

The main activity I witnessed happened after dark though.

Looking forward to today’s potential.

Why, you may ask?

Well because this week the areas on the edges of risk zones seem to be fairing well (don’t ask me why - just an observation).

Today the risk zone is large - mathematically this makes the circumference of that area particularly big, so a good chance for a fair few places (if you agree with my strange logic, that is 😉).

Also because, why not - we could have a red severe warning this week and it would likely bring us nothing but stratus cloud so today it seems more reasonable to expect something.

fingers crossed
