Storms and Convective Discussion - 25th June 2019 onwards


Recommended Posts

The storms last night seemed a bit limited in their severe extent - albeit the lightning was spectacular! No reports of large hail or wind gusts as I understand?

Does anyone have an idea of storm capabilities tomorrow? Obviously the dew points/temps will be slightly higher than Tuesday, I suspect both this and the timing of initiation will play a part in the severity. Either way it's looking like some places (including me in the East) have a moderate chance of getting another decent lightning show...especially if convection organises itself and tracks east, fingers crossed!

You wait a lifetime for a funnel cloud and then two come at once!

A few from last night, just South of Salisbury. Mostly intracloud stuff, but an impressive light show none the less.  

Well that was a pretty awesome night. Although I cant help but feel slightly disappointed for not getting any SLR shots. And now I'm left wanting more and more ?. Anyway a very impressive light show w

There were some very strong gusts when the first cell came through Stoke. Exceptionally so I'd so but nothing to measure.

I am at work on Friday but it is a short day and so if things look good then I'll be out chasing. I will just fight through the tiredness with the help of a can of red bull on Friday morning.

It is too early to be precise but we will certainly be under the hot plume with high CAPE building through the day. I reckon we have a decent chance of something from late afternoon onwards.

I’d say it’s worth the fatigue, if you can catch up at the weekend ?

I'm thinking 2 areas of attention tomorrow. Isolated/scattered storms firing up over the pennines and a few other spots 3-9pm, might not happen at all. Then potentially more severe storms kicking off towards the south east and pushing north 9pm-12midnight....   Got a feeling somewhere like lincolnshire could get pounded tomorrow night

Well I went to bed before the real action but was woken to thunder around 3.30 and the radar showing a massive band. So yes, it was at least as good as Eurovision 2018.

BBC, MET and NMM say tomorrow evening is best. GFS gets things going around 3pm.

Well a weak storm last night hopefully not the total for the year. Hopefully tomorrow will deliver better after I've got home from a few pints.

So we have an early warning from UKMO and a forecast from PJB (ukww), but not much interest from Convectiveweather as of yet, they are often the most accurate forecast so lets hope to see an update soon

Fantastic photos! ?

I went a bit silly and just bought a D5300 to replace my old D60 and a low-light lens.

Love using iPhone to shoot storms but I’ve always envied ppl with a proper digital and who get photos like these. What camera are you using?

Hopefully tomorrow will provide a lot of practice material to work with ???

If anyone’s looking for a great secondhand SLR I’m selling the D60 - it’s a really good camera - I just wanted higher resolution and Bluetooth.

(PM me if interested ?)
