This video I have uploaded is the supercell thunderstorm in Florida from the 28th July. This is the first part.

 

Thanks for uploading the videos, though I do think this would make sense in a dedicated thread - as it would make it a lot easier to find and revisit these at a later stage ?

The warning tells of a possible 20mm of rain in an hour..

 

Looking at the radar, with rainfall rates up to 250mm/hr  that warning may be on the conservative side..

Alright, I'll post them on the North American thread then.

Was thinking you could do a new thread just for footage from your time in Florida, then it’s all in one place and can easily be found & studied ?

im not a mod so continue putting it in here if you like, just thought it might get lost amongst the regular posts about all the storms in Scotland ?

Heard a very faint rumble ?

Look like popcorn showers further to the SW but as they head eastwards the storms should be able to maintain moderate electrification with a weakly organised structure.

Looks like a feed of mildly unstable air from the continent is now overlapping with the fronts coming in from the West, and I would expect further convergence to initiate hefty showers and storms across central areas of the south then moving NE
