    It’s messy but getting louder. Almost looks like a funnel in the second pic.

    Stonking day for storms. Had two cells with continuous thunder [but mostly no visible lightning again]. Here's some pictures of one storm that I tracked as it progressed up the M11 which produced some

    Am enjoying a weekend away 60 miles S of Prague in the pretty town of Písek, the storm front that came in this evening was dramatic! 

    Didn’t know we was expecting an avalanche today 🤔

    Heavy shower on the approach with a fairly nice looking base. Can this produce? Every storm this year has managed to dodge this location! Either way I’m confident this will be last chance saloon from this spell if it doesn’t produce.

    Can see flickering from the clouds now but I have a horrible feeling that they are going to side swipe behind me to my East, (aka the hill my house is on will stop me from seeing them 😞 ) 

     

    EDIT Holy Poop a CG!

    Good afternoon 

    and so it begins again here in Lincolnshire, rumbles to my South East and the radar showing plenty of action moving up from Cambridgeshire.

    we were the "cooking area" for storms today looking at the radar - this risk has now transferred north and west. At least i got to see SOME convection today.

    Little thunderstorm passing west of me- spotted it intially on my walk in, and it's been rumbling away since I got to work.

    Also added a pretty pic of the convective clouds, just because ;)

    A line of storms originally to the West of here, then faded for a few minutes but re invigorating right over me with quite possible the largest raindrops ive ever seen, but now to the East of here massive booms with flashes, missed out on the hail and intense rain.
