Storms and convective discussion - 18th June 2020 onwards

Recommended Posts

You just don’t get the storms like we used to in this country anymore. I remember as a kid in the 90s early 00s you would get storms that lasted all night and I would still hear them rumbling away as I went to school in the morning.

Total bust here apart from a small bit of thunder. Looks like nothing now for the rest of the night. Gutted!

I think there was generally too much capping going on today. Also the storms modeled to move from SW to NE never materialized.

Absolute tosh. What does it take to get good storms in this country. 

That storm that passed leeds and went north through the dales, looked set to give barnard castle (of all places) a good hiding. Set up stall there just before it's arrival yet it died just a few miles before reaching..   Saw a couple of good cg's and a bit of heavy rainfall but that was it.

I remember a few years ago a couple of storms that developed towards manchester and clobbered the yorkshire dales with strike rates of upto 300/min, that's the animal I'm after.

Ain't that the truth!

Can't complain about the Sheffield storm today but looking at the bigger picture I agree with you ?

I'm liking the comments here today ? we seemed to do well with the last set of convergence storms, I won't believe my luck if the same happens today! My home seems to be right in the forecast charts firing line for this afternoons 'pop up' storms but I really do think it'll be hit and miss. Think I'll be out in the car later doing some fen storm chasing!! Fingers crossed I can make use of the pano roof 

How did it go for you Matt? Just got back to London. Lots of thunder but little lightning - some great cloud structure though. Will post some pics tonight/tomorrow.

I really like that area and know Dan is chasing there today, sadly other commitments curtail me but would be all over that Kings Lynn Risk.

Its 2c warmer here already than yesterdays top temperature, partly down to a southerly wind today and easterly yesterday

Wasn't too bad Paul. Be interesting to know how Dan got on. Constant thunder but very little lightning.

Have we forgotten about last year? 23rd of July? ?

Ac cas now disappearing to my east, and a bank of cloud to my west, possibly cold front. Think this is done now for today here.

The sooner all his horrible humidity buggers off the better. I was up at 5:30 this morning (the first time since my Monday morning commutes, from Glenurquhart to Methil, way back in 1992!) and I don't want to be doing the same thing tomorrow!

Sod all on the thunder-front today, BTW: this morning's potential excitement amounted to nothing more than a couple hours' sporadic rain!:oldsad:

On a 'brighter' note, however, it has been Beccles's hottest day so far, this year: 28C.?

Are we not supposed to get something overnight, closer to the east coast the better

No thunderbangs here in bucks/beds border but lovely cool breeze now and desperately trying to cool the house before all the night-butterflies come in.

Birmingham storm shield just a bit too strong today to allow any thunderstorms to smash through. The darn thing! ? Quite a let down as the Met Office for the Midlands seemed rather confident despite the hot and miss nature of storms. Probably shouldn’t complain, as did pretty well last week. Some spectacular thundery bangers for some further North though. 

Could be wrong, but can’t help but feel had this troughy, pokey, part of this Low been held back a little bit more South-West, it perhaps could have allowed more time for some storms to break out further South and West. Allowing more areas to also be exposed to the very warm and hot Southerly/South-Easterly flow for longer ahead of that Westerly to South-Westerly flow from the Atlantic. May have then encouraged more stormy activity further South-West (including the Midlands itself).

Still a chance for some stormy surprises tomorrow, however, as the main area of the Low to our West edges in further North-East. Along with lowering 500mb heights, should bring about an assortment of showers and longer spells of rain for places, some of which could very well be thundery. Going to try not get too excited yet (especially with what happened today and the fact the storm shields in some areas could prove to be too tough)

Nonetheless, there was this interesting (Lenticular?) cloud I took earlier today in Eastern Solihull just before 12pm. View towards the North-West.

Worth adding as well that there was one point briefly where the sky became quite threatening, but not enough power in the convective clouds to slice apart the storm shield!

Nothing worse than getting a notification off the Met Office saying your Thunderstorm warning has been cancelled.

Producing a very impressive amount of lightning from what looks like a small but heavy shower.

Some stills from today's chase in Ely, Cambridgeshire. Got a load of thunder but no lightning seen.
