    Sun has suddenly gone in and there is really rapid cloud formation above me. Distant thunder from the calshot cell.

    Haven’t you stormchasers had enough excitement yet.

    It’s very unusual to see the duration of those storms in the UK a few days back.

    Beautiful cloudscape today looking NW and N towards Dartmoor from Salcombe. Currently a weird rifle shaped anvil visible the furthest west of the convection! Clouds have been bubbling up for several hours now but only in the last 30min or so have they started looking a bit more organised. Not convinced they will produce anything but you never know...

    That Calshot cells incredibly slow moving. Still breaking up and intensifying each time the radar updates.

    Plenty of tower's have gone up through the afternoon, but not enough oomph within them to keep them going. Not a sausage here in the past three days.
