Storms and Convective Discussion - 25th June 2019 onwards

First of two ‘arms’ went through. Peak rain rates over 100 mm/hr but only lasted about 5 mins - they’re scooting along as expected.

Lighting is more ‘veiled’ than during the top-tier 2014 events and thunder much quieter.

Some powerful wind gusts though!

 

In the end, five bouts of torrential rain, most intense one reaching nearly 150 mm/hr, with the final one being the most noisy thunder-wise due to a lower cloud base (it was a back-built one).

8/10 for me.

Same thoughts I had compared to 2014.

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

Incredible light show... followed it up the m5 briefly but its moving so fast. Still flashing with forks going across the sky. Amazing stuff. Looks like more coming up from the south maybe?

Gorgeous, I can see the new active cells over W London to my west (producing frequent lightning) and I’ve got a cell approaching from the SSW producing much less frequent lightning but much more vivid and occasional distant thunder.

W London cell kicking out some serious voltage!

Night time storms really are worth the bleary eyes next day in work. Was a good view looking north with forks darting across the sky. Wish i could take decent shots!

Perhaps a little more storm activity rolling in on the tail end from Somerset. Haven't had a storm like this for quite some time!
