    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 🤔

    Mystery solved! It was a firework competition at Abingdon. You'd hear that from Newbury!

    Day 1 Convective Outlook

    VALID 06:00 UTC Sun 23 Aug 2020 - 05:59 UTC Mon 24 Aug 2020

    ISSUED 08:01 UTC Sun 23 Aug 2020

    ISSUED BY: Dan

    A broad westerly flow covers Britain and Ireland on Sunday, with a better overlap of cool 500mb temperatures with relatively warm 850mb temperatures to generate corridor of steeper mid-level lapse rates from Northern Ireland across the northern England / north Midlands. Consequently this zone will be the focus for deeper convection in response to diurnal heating through the day, although the overall depth of convection is rather restricted and so lightning is likely to be quite isolated, and similar to Saturday most likely from Yorkshire south across the East Midlands into Norfolk (15-20% chance) where 20-30kts bulk shear will aid cell longevity. The most organised cells could produce gusty winds up to 30-35mph locally.

    Shower activity will tend to weaken overnight, but an area of showery rain associated with a shallow low sliding eastwards across southern Ireland into SW Britain could produce the odd isolated lightning strike, but the risk is considered rather low.

    It looks like a trough rather than a squall line, with a line of convergence. You'd associate a squall line with a cold front, so there would be a marked drop in temperature behind it.

    The last feature that done that, in June sometime, gave me my only storm of the year so far, and a negative cg in my back garden.

    It was 15 degC and wet in Blackpool at 12, the convergence line was through Stoke(brought the M6 to a halt), and I am now in Northants at 19 degC.

    May hear a bang if you're near Edgware in a minute. I didn't expect this much activity today but I guess I haven't been looking enough at models!

    Just finished uploading the storm that was in the North Sea two days ago. Contains 40 minutes of lightning from start to finish. 

    I have enhanced the video so you can see the lightning a bit better.

    Might see a flash or two if that starts to produce anything. Always developing over the blinking sea.

    I do believe for the south it could be a vaguely interesting week. Several low-level thunder risks could transpire if we have some luck. Also the SELy direction of any troughs/fronts is always a bonus for this region (when the other right parameters are in place).

    🤞

    ESTOFEX Issued a level 1 for the SW & Wales today (24th Aug)

     

    A level 1 was issued for parts of Great Britain and Ireland mainly for severe wind gusts and to a lesser extent for tornadoes.

    ...Great Britain and Ireland...

    At the end of the forecast period, the cold front enters the LVL1 area. It is emphasized by a maximum in the LL moisture convergence field which indicates a small moisture tongue. Along that tongue forecast soundings indicate the possibility that a bit (MU)-CAPE can develop which enhances the possibility for DMC.

    However, the development of CAPE and thus the possibility of thunderstorms along the cold front is the main factor of uncertainty.

    If storms indeed develop, they can benefit from high DLS and strong mid level winds. In combination with the entering dry intrusion with descending dry air from above, the threat of severe to extremely severe wind gusts is enhanced.

    In addition, also LLS is high and LCLs are low. Therefore the development of a short tornado event can not be ruled out.

    “End of forecast period” suggests that this risk is possibly going to head eastwards after 6am... is this correct?

    That would be good if it did 🙂

    Sferic showing up in the mass of torrential rain which has now moved out of Devon.

    Alot of torrential Downpours showing up around London, 
    Also some moving through Southampton ,. 

    "Thundery Downpours" in the literalness of the word.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
