Storms and Convective discussion- 7th August onwards

Recommended Posts

Big increase in flashes now, as others report. Easily 30+ per minute at times, so a lot more than detectors show. I'm going to head Hastings direction to get a little closer 🙃

Can see distant lightning to the ESE from Littlehampton from the cells about to move into Kent, the western side of the MCS looks useless so just rain here.

Hopefully the muck clears out quickly and allows good convective opportunity like today across regions that so far have had no luck

I think there is ripeness in the atmosphere for the storm to re-establish itself on landfall. It was always a low possibility in the storm forecasts - don’t lose hope

Storm started here about 15 minutes ago. Lots of lightning and long rumbles of thunder, no rain as of yet.

yeah, there is a storm NE of gloucester.. Probably at least 1 flash per second. maybe more. Constant rolling thunder..
Yet, it barely even registers on the detectors currently

Just a few grabs of the lightning. It is still flickering away! Some of the rumbles are getting louder again!

Honestly not too fussed about it, loved seeing the cloud structures today and watch them blow up in real time! Good instability to use tomorrow before we move into thundery rain territory. I will be back home as well tomorrow in hopefully a better primed area.

Definate lightning from the cells over towards Kent's coast.

I don't want that rain it can sod off. Rain followed by 12 hours of ☁️ then nothing tomorrow. Rinse and repeat.
