Storms and Convective Discussion - 25th June 2019 onwards

    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.

    Had large hail here in Bournemouht but didn't last long.

    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

    Met Office saying that from 6pm and onwards there will be thunderstorms moving up north from Brighton towards London and above but i think its more of a now cast situation 

    I think its a 'will the cap break?' situation.

    Looks like I might be in a good spot tomorrow. Hoping for some good Lincolnshire home grown if cape breaks. Should be dark as well for some photos

    Anyone have any info on London? It seems it is hard to see with this batch of storms when they are going to turn up and where, but with the amount of CAPE any that spark up could be big.

    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 ?)
