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

Meto video forecast has me right on the edge later - I do genuinely feel I will be too far west, but pretty much everyone got it wrong on Tuesday so we shall see.

Praying with you from Winch my dear!

Central and North East France convection is exploding now in a northerly direction.

In the past hr the temp has dropped from 22c to now 20c

Sun and cloud here very hot, would love a storm today with lots of rain, veggie garden needs it. Tuesday's storm was great but hardly any rain. Don't think we are in the firing line today. I am new to this could someone explain to me what a cap is without being to technical please.

Heading down towards West Sussex when I finish work. That France storm is going quite nuts

If it's still going potty at 5pm, I am going down to Worthing Pier, will get there around 5.20.

Why are all the forecasts so different? 

most of them actually today are pretty similar

It just comes down to interpretation of the model data and there points of view of course

Anyways just a heads up from my area of the woods. The cold front is more windier than I thought, a total covering of low to middle lvl clouds.

 

I'm just waiting on an update for temps.

Really? There is a storm leaving northern France at the moment

I was prob a bit alarmist there. Looks like a rain curtain but had a waterspout appearance . I guess 20 miles or so?

Unbelievable here - the wind is like a sauna and a few drops of rain in the air!

Layers of air. The cap is high pressure which impedes the upwards development of clouds, as moist air can’t move any further without some kind of additional mechanical lift. Usually forcing from beneath (by way of an approaching cold front) will give it the additional upwards motion and once it’s clear of the cap (or the cap gradually weakens) we see explosive development as the air finds its way upwards and condenses en masse
