Admittedly, not storm pics but very changeable out there, managed to catch this a few mins ago.


Great shot, could you just stick you location in your profile so we know roughly where it was taken please? :good:

More heavy rain last night adding another 30mm+ to the monthly total which now stands at 258.6mm. Was even treated to a a flash of lightning & two rumbles of thunder.


Staggering Steve, 60ish mm in Weston from 2 nights of Bristol Channel streamer showers while just 30 or so miles away 2mm from a few sharp showers in the
same time scale!

60mm rainfall = 2 feet of snow in winter too. Posted Image

Formally STORMBOY, come visit my Blog http://naturestimeline.com/ to learn more about this slightly eccentric anorak, who goes by the name of Tony!

Finally, two quotes from two very different recent Winters.

"Wasn't it enough that we lived through the coldest December for over 100 years that no one alive has experienced?" and "Wasn't it enough that we lived through the wettest December - February for over 250 years that no one alive has experienced?"

Yet again Peterborough misses the showers on this direct West wind! They just all seem to travel along the A14 corridor on this type of setup. We seem to get the showers more often on a Southwesterly.

See out in the Channel just off Dover this morning - my first funnel cloud - apologies for the quality taken on my phone while I was jumping up and down!

Caught a funnel today over the Solway whilst travelling to Carlisle. It doesn't look as impressive on the photo as I was using my mobile and zoomed in a little, but you can make it out.

Great images folks. Last time I saw a funnel cloud was August 1997.

Last time I saw a funnel cloud was when it dropped a tornado right in my back yard in June 2009, if anyone remembers that storm, it was when it suddenly brewed in the east and dropped 3-4 inches of hail and inevitably flooded everywhere, June 16th I believe, the worst storm I will probably ever see in this country.

Hmm, looking at that image above, Norwich probably got something that day too. I'm racking my brains to remember. The photo of the tornado is a good one.

Hmmm, it's not a massive potential according to GFS, but they may be on to something:

Any thoughts on the potential Fri to Sunday? Tomorrow could see some action as a cold front attemps to move east, then Thurs well at the moment looks a quieter day then friday convection kicks off could a change of month bring some storms to those who have missed out so far.

I will be watching todays updated faxes especially the later ones s the human input could give us some clues. A lot depends on what temp is dragged in tomorrow behind that cold front and what air pressure we finish up with. But still with a good strong sun, lets hope something gets fired up. I've now loaded my camera as i dont want to miss any good magical moments like i did Sunday morning - 5.30 am rising sun catching storm clouds moving in from west ,beutifull orangy yellow sky.

More chance of flying to moon I reckon. Just watch it wither from the west and drift east.

edit: How do I post images instead of links?

edit 2: Edited a few times to keep up with recent runs and I've now just posted my first picture.

regards tomorrows COLD FRONT ,at present the advancing front is much more organised and already showing nicely ,i think we have two possible options on offer ,it comes through with vigour or is just a little wimp ,breaking up as it crosses good old uk , i prefer the first option but timing will be critical . it could surprise us all ,or as i said a wimp . tonights sat view at about 7.30 pm should provide us with some clues ,as angle of sun will be about right to bring out detail ,gone muggy here with patchy light rain ,cheers
