Convective/Storm Discussion Thread - 19th May 2018 onwards


Recommended Posts

I keep getting a little bit excited as I keep hearing some low deep rumbles. I am living on a campsite in our caravan in a field, about 8 miles from Margate and Ramsgate inland, and so am really hoping for a good storm. Will make my day/night. It's been very gusty here all day, and it's hard to tell if it's just wind still gusting or not. Other half has the tv on quite loud. I can't see it's thunder but ...  

ok I think it's just wind... next!! ?

A thunderstorm would round off the perfect evening after Liverpool lost the CL final. 

Can't ask for too much can i?!

Looking much more promising in the channel now! 

Anyone else having trouble loading Lightning Maps? I'm having to rely on Blitzortung atm which isn't as good.

Yeah not working for me at the moment

The interesting thing is blitzortung is showing lightning in the south east even though the reflectivity on the radar looks like hardly anything
