    Some very tasty charts for Tuesday Night...

    1000J/Kg of MLCAPE, Basic Levels of DLS, Extremely High SRH all combined provides a risk of some very quite large hail & prolific lightning as cloud tops reach -50'c. Looks like potential for some elevated supercells where we have best overlap of ingredients.

    Really hope it's more East for our side. Fingers crossed for a good storm this time

    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

    This model shows thunderstorm potential for central and eastern areas of the uk, your thoughts?

    Yes, thunderstorms are possible from Tuesday evening and Wednesday before drifting North, with possible scattered storms behind too, but I'm not too sure about this far east as this is showing being closer to the high. But I could be wrong, the East/South east might get some surprises too.

    WOW Im interested in the area by east anglia now, the risk for tornado is rather high there for now, but this could only be for a guess, but still, shows this storm has potential to be very potent, also with all the tornados in the UK in the past two days, i wouldnt doubt this prediction!

    See I’m thinking that practically every time the storm risk up to 4 days out shows the worst of it over our area it corrects east just enough to be a Sussex/Kent affair, so I’m hopeful that this standard shift will occur over the next 24 hours.

    Its a prediction but I think wilts and hants will be the central zone for the worst (best?) weather, and areas widely to either side will enjoy elevated activity too.

    I was wondering if anyone can confirm that the eastern side of whatever may (or may not) form will be the most electrically active? Is this a standard behaviour of MCS thunderstorms in the northern hemisphere?

    It is noticeable that the east and south side of a MCS is usually the most intense and where the most lightning occurs!

    However, destabilisation looks further West at the moment. I'd plump for Devon and Cornwall and trundling North.

    Oh joy, i'm meant to be flying out to the Isle of Man early on Wednesday and as much as I enjoy a good storm or two i'm not too keen on possible flight delays ? although a bumpy ride in a DH4 would be interesting.

    If this year has taught us anything it’s forecasting this sort of weather 2-3 days out is foolhardy! Exciting though admittedly ?

    2-3 hours out is also unreliable ?

    Being located pretty much in the middle of the Midlands the storms always seem to bypass us to the East or West.

    Though I’m hoping this will be a large cluster of storms, spread out over a large area, rather than a thin line of precipitation.

    Nothing will happen hear the most we will get if anything is a few distant rumbles as the storm decays trundels over us and then rebuilds for areas north of us

     I’m feeling positive about Tuesday night here. Looks better than the last fail anyway. Another significant risk on Thursday it seems as well.

    Paul just issued his convective outlook on UKWW. He called the last fail correctly so I’m paying particular attention to his forecasts this time.

    Tough little planes the Q400, but they can't go above a thunderstorm so I suppose they have to be !

    That's what i'm hoping as Ronaldsway has a CATI ILS system so it's navigable to land with a minimum ceiling and winds, normally it's the sea-fog which is the cause for diversion or cancellations and the forecast has the worst of the *possible* storms way north by mid-morning.

    Marsh @ Metcheck provides this forecast for Tuesday (based on current output):

    Taking into account a slight eastward correction that usually occurs (hopefully :oldp:) I would put all but the far east of the UK under some sort of risk, with rainfall being a lesser concern than that of lightning strikes and convective wind gusts.

    Anything that occurs on Tuesday night looks elevated. Therefore I'd imagine lightning may be visible from a fairly wide area, potentially.
