Well here is something of interest.  It was literally just issued.   TOPS of FL420, that's pretty much on par with some of the stuff experienced in Central Africa and the Gulf.  Incredible!

I'm feeling a bit edgy if honest- this area was level 2 on estofex so i will keep the faith, for now.

Yes.  FL = Flight Level on a standard pressure of 1013hPa.  So roughly 42,000ft or about 8miles.

Yeah I saw that but they have changed now and to be honest this is a now cast situation, think we will be very unlucky not to see anything
