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

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.

The Cat1 refers to visibility not winds, but yes sea fog would make it impossible. In fact sea fog would make it impossible for all but Cat3 and none of the planes into Ronaldsway have that I suspect, even if the airport did. Cloud bases should be high anyway - certainly above 200ft - so I don't imagine visibility will be a problem.

Maybe good things will come to those who wait.

I must add though, I'm starting to have a good feeling about Tuesday regardless.  Anyone remember September 13th 2016?  It was the best storm I've ever seen and Tuesday's convective weather forecast reminds me of that Tuesday's convective weather forecast....

I bet the place I'm going to the Lake District next week will end up getting a good storm and I'm gonna wish the storms were pushed back one week later lol, not too sure about our area unless we get anything elevated or if there's a sudden change on the day of radar watching which has happened

I remember the 13th September 2016 very well:

Strangely, the 16th September was a better storm for me:

I'm yet to beat my rainfall record for that night.

Yes I remember that day well too - the afternoon was hot but it cooled down significantly in the evening as that storm approached. I was convinced it would die before reaching here but I was pleasantly surprised. Constant lightning was the main feature.

I’m sure this is the storm I decided to stay in Portsmouth for... I had the chance to go to Bournemouth to my then partners but thought Pompey would get hit. 

I remember seeing the lightning from my room (I lived in a high rise then) and the strikes where so powerful, so many CG - was amazing

I think it’s odds on 80% that there’ll be good storms to the west. Maybe 30% it will be any further east than, say, Basingstoke

Would like to see a slight eastward correction on the 0z suites. It seems to have been pushed W slightly on the 18z runs which means the bulk of the feature runs up through Wales and into the Irish Sea before affecting SW Scotland. The Arpege even has N Ireland joining in!

This is the best chance at a decent light show here in years...please do not go the way of the pear AGAIN!

Certainly feels a while since we've had any imported thunderstorms here in Bristol. Hopefully we can be the breeding ground for a huge MCS to track across all the areas further North! ?

Hello Fello Storm Entbusiasts, 

i just wondered if you would know roughly if any and where storms are most likely during this week? 

 

I live in Northeast Somerset right on Som/Wilts border in Frome and I have no idea if there are any storms likely this week during the heatwave and on which day/night. 

 

Would any any of you have a rough guide please .

i caught some amazing lightning shots here last year in April. Was a strange month with very heavy snow at the start then heat and electrical storms at the end more Akin to Canadian weather ?

Many Thanks .

Hello there. 

Its pretty hard to pin down where exactly the storms will occur at this range still. 

I would say as things stand, there’s a decent chance of elevated storms firing up on Tuesday night, as a slight upper trough heads north, providing lifting mechanism and probably breaking the cap. Southwestern areas up through the West Midlands into the NW would have the best shot with this forecasted round, but other areas could still see some storms, potentially dry storms further East, as that’s where the hotter and drier air will be. 

After that, Wednesday and Thursday could well see some storms brew both day and night, and potential for surface based storms in the daytime in the East. 

Thats what I’m thinking currently, but hi resolution models should be watched closely from now on in, as marginal changes could make huge differences. 

Nick F I should imagine will issue warnings and storm forecasts tomorrow at some point. Estofex and convective weather will no doubt be on it too. Keep an eye on them.

Good morning EES

Really appreciate you're reply and many thanks for taking the time and effort for me. ??

 

It looks like many could see storms and I hope we all do.  

 

Thanks again , my eyes are fixed for Tuesday Wednesday here . I might even drive a little too to find them .
