what does it mean when there is lowlevel cloud with a storm moving very fast

The low-level messy stuff is scud. It often travels in the opposite direction of the storm, like what happened here yesterday, showing the shear in the atmosphere.

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

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!

Huge drops of rain now. Already at 18.8mm for the day, it's bound to go above 25mm again. So much rain in 10 days!

Had some rotation on top of me earlier. I'd presume a scud but not sure if anyone else has any differing opinions.

A little thunderstorm rumbling away in Poole Bay just offshore. Nothing on lightning maps or ATD showing up though.
