    I’m aware of that but this storm hasn’t formed a tornado it’s definitely been a good thunderstorm but just that.

    To quote her, "Ripped the top of a morrisons truck off though. Shit flying everywhere. I grew up with these but thats the closest ive been. It was in tring/cheddington area." (she's from US, hence grew up with them).  I'm always sceptical when people say they've seen a tornado, but certainly sounds like she experienced something of note.

    What's that blob of rain over Lester and that kinda way? Is it gaining strength?

    No, that's the remnants of the Northants M1 coridoor storm that lost its mojo southwards.  There are still 2 potent cells but they may die now solar warming has stopped.

    That tornado must of drained the energy from the storm because it started dying after that report.

    Okay it’s really not something to get het up over I know very well what a tornado is and the simple fact that most thunderstorms don’t form them gave me the consensus that it was probably a squall more than anything but yes I could be wrong but not a big deal.

    Ok, is there any chance of that blob of rain turning into a storm?

    True but the fact that the storms have decayed away gives you an idea that the energy isn’t really great enough to sustain anything let alone strengthen them

    The band of rain on the latest updates show it decaying into nothing. It’s not even managed to reach Leicester.

    • 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.
