    This cell has grown so much! Lightning picked up on the radar as well

    Edit: Looks like the main rain is going to be a few miles South...

    And there's the lightning! Surprised lightning is only being shown on the Lincoln cells and not the heavier cells down South

     

    Edit: Nvm spoke too soon

    The blokes a treasure, and a great asset to the storm chasing community around the world! An expert on and off the Great Plains and roads. 

    I’m slap bang under the centre of the low now, and there’s 0 wind at all! Just watching grey cumulus and CB’s stationarily build over me! Hoping we get some rumbles as the pull away sets in.

    how many more thunder days are Lincolnshire going to have this summer? its incredible, my mate lives in Lincoln and he says there have been over 20 seperate days where he has heard thunder. By comparison we have had 2 rumbles all year and this was from the same distant storm on Wednesday morning. That was the day where 19 different cells passed us within 20 miles radius but we didnt get even remotely close to anything ourselves.

    We've had quite a few in the past week, normally Lincoln tends to avoid the storms. Would be great to see a night storm this Summer but there's only a month or so left for a chance with decent storms. Doesn't look like this Summer will get imports but been good for home growns

    yea some areas have had day after day of storms this summer, mainly Lincolnshire, London and Essex

    others like Cheshire, Norfolk, South Wales and Cornwall have had absolutely nothing at all.

    He might be exaggerating a bit, I moved to Lincoln on 9 April and I've heard thunder on 13 days so far, 7 of which have occurred in July.  But your overall point still stands, I seem to have really struck lucky moving here this year.

    I imagine late August and early September will be the next best chances

    You should come here, we only get storms in the middle of the night IF they do occur. Haven't had a daytime storm in many years. It's a shame as I'm always asleep during them.

    I remember Norwich had a big one just two days ago, though it was quite a narrow band extending from WSW-ENE through Norwich.

    I'm still perplexed as to why naming as storm makes it any worse than not naming a storm. Of course the MetO are covering their @@rse against any possible claims of not being informed, but really apart from folks in tents AND some folks in Cornwall did this REALLY warrant naming? Seems to me every little hiccup these days means the MetO cover their butt and name some a storm, considering neither Ireland or France got their first I bet their happen with their coverage. We had 4mm of rain and 24mph winds, a storm really..I've seen a lot worse in Autumn than that..

    Nice dip, down here on the coast much less pronounced, of course the wind speeds were a lot less too

    CW Forecast

    Day 1 Convective Outlook

    VALID 06:00 UTC Sat 31 Jul 2021 - 05:59 UTC Sun 01 Aug 2021

    ISSUED 07:33 UTC Sat 31 Jul 2021

    ISSUED BY: Chris

    A broad upper trough will linger across Britain leading to a scattering of showers, a few perhaps heavy with a rumble of thunder into the afternoon. 

     

    The area with the largest chance for lightning appears to be a zone across London, Essex and Kent during Saturday due to a combination of around 300-500 J/kg of CAPE and weak surface convergence aided by a little terrain induced lift. There is very little shear in this set-up and profiles aloft are rather warm, so convection may be limited, and in most cases too weak to produce lightning. 

     

    Elsewhere the risk of lightning will be low, however convection/showers will likely develop across southern and eastern parts of England as well as in a zone from north Wales southeastwards down through the Midlands and into SE England.

    Yet again tornadoes were reported in Peterborough yesterday.

    WWW.PETERBOROUGHTODAY.CO.UK

    ‘Tornadoes’ have been spotted in the skies in Peterborough as the city is set to be hit by thunderstorms.

    Since 2007 that is now the 4th tornado reported directly over Peterborough.

    Glad you could meet him. I love his videos, his laid back approach and his wonderful music (as you know he composes it himself!).  And his fascination with the wildlife is a bonus. Great guy.

    Tip him a nod from a fan when you next chat to him!  🙂
