Day 2 Convective Outlook

VALID 06:00 UTC Wed 28 Aug 2019 - 05:59 UTC Thu 29 Aug 2019

ISSUED 20:22 UTC Tue 27 Aug 2019

Residual pockets of elevated instability across SE England, and more especially East Anglia, may produce a few isolated lightning strikes on Wednesday morning. Otherwise the main focus for any lightning will be over Ireland, and to a lesser extent western Scotland, as an upper trough and associated cold pool migrate across the area, generating a few hundred J/kg CAPE. Despite strong shear, marginal instability and limited convective depth suggests lightning will be rather isolated overall.

Nothing on lightningmaps or Blitzortung but there is a cell down that way.

Yeah noticed that.

Seems to also have been showing a few false strikes as well not far from here when in fact there was nothing.

All that electricity up there is making lightningmaps and Blitzortung play up lol

 

Another cell popped up south of Derby

Well. Lincolnshire has been utterly spoilt today. Several hailcores and microbursts along with an amazing silent lightning show to my north for a whole hour on the most recent storm. Intra cloud superbolts and even a few small crawlers as it headed between bourne and Lincoln. 

A reminder that it’s definitely the storm capital especially when it comes to homegrown storms.

As expected it has  all completely missed us but we're having a very impressive show from the cells to the west/north-west. Constant thunder and lightning.

Think it's safe to say our storm shield has defiantly broken here in Lincoln lol, usually they tend to be a few miles West or East but we got a direct hit with some unbelievable bright flashes. I can now see why Lincolnshire tends to be a hot spot for storms

Yup they are very close to me, must be just to the west of Cottingham and gave a good light show.
