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!

    Quite a nice line of anvils now visible to the west as a mini squall line moves in this direction.

    Not had a drop of rain yet today here, but my colleagues further south in Hants reported a hailstorm a couple of hours ago.

    Some of the hail in the UK this year has been exceptional. That there must be half of the size of some of the ice I saw coming out of supercells in the States, which is seriously impressive for the UK.

    Anyone under that massive clump of mess near Haywards Heath?

    It seems like a pretty decent hailstorm for someone for sure.

    I was at work in Bolney 3 miles to the west and at that time we had hail to around 5-6mm and some very gusty winds!

    I grabbed all of the timelapse and lightning videos I filmed over the past few days and clumped it together into this one video.

    And here are some more pictures.

    Day 1 Convective Outlook

    VALID 06:00 UTC Tue 03 Nov 2020 - 05:59 UTC Wed 04 Nov 2020

    ISSUED 07:49 UTC Tue 03 Nov 2020

    ISSUED BY: Dan

    A comma cloud feature will continue to clear eastwards to the North Sea from central and southern Britain on Tuesday morning, while still posing the risk for a few isolated lightning strikes. Longer spells of rain in parts of Scotland will also clear to the North Sea. Elsewhere, a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers is expected, the showers heaviest and most widespread near western coasts fuelled by the relatively warm seas.

    By the afternoon shear becomes fairly weak under the upper trough axis, but given a few hundred J/kg CAPE then a few sporadic lightning strikes will be possible - the main focus near western coasts and English Channel, but perhaps also feeding inland across the NW England / NW Midlands for example. SW England could see quite a number of showers late afternoon and through the evening. However, the overall risk is considered below SLGT thresholds. Showers will gradually ease in intensity and coverage during the evening and night hours. Hail is likely in many of the showers, and gusty winds of 40-50mph are also possible along exposed coasts.

    There's some sleet in the shower passing over me right now, only the odd bit here and there (no where near enough to show on the radar) but could see the odd sleet splatter splot on the car windscreen below my window. It's also bloomin' freezing up here! Barely 5C! 🥶

    If Today was June or July I would be getting excited by now, heavy showers moving through and they are all Elevated and some of the structure's look really cool and classic. Here is one of our own local  webcams facing North from Lake
