Didn’t know we was expecting an avalanche today 🤔

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! 

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

Had 6 IC rumbles from the storms that just trundled through, yay!

Yup ;_; t'was a side swipe as usual as they are moving NE, no visible lightning but could see the odd flicker. But here, have some pics.

Distant Anvil off to my NW

Dark Tower forming under the Anvil of the Storms to my NE (and was being pulled towards them) that grew up and up and up and eventually merged with the anvil.

Ha ha, the square with the heavy shower (storm?) crossing the Humber and heading for me is not displaying in the latest update on NW radar. Must be a stealthy approach! image.thumb.png.1644d65dd607cab196298715f6bdb66b.png

Took these, just on my phone (wish I had a better camera..) up Rodborough Common near Stroud. Bit of thunder rumbling about....

Naff all here, again.

Getting used to it now 😒 

My lightning detector did pick up some of the strikes further east this morning but nowhere near close enough to see or hear anything.

Suns about to poke it's face out from behind the anvil here, hopefully it's strong enough to evaporate the surface wetting we just had to boost more convection.

Also have a shot of some very weak mammatus on the underside of the anvil.

Dark skies to the south of Macclesfield too, but to the north west in the distance there's this mass of bubbling convection, as the crow files it's out towards the Dee estuary.  Sorry photo does not really give the sense of how big it is.

Finally getting some proper persistent insolation now hopefully it’s not too late for something to kick off. Hoping the Wirral will act as a convergence zone
