Just a quick snap from this evening while on the road home from Portrush heading back S. Very 'heavy' stormy looking sky as dark clouds gathered. Soon they delivered heavy convective showers which should have been thundering - perhaps next time.

Nice shot through the windscreen Martin, impressive looking skies around today-better than yesterday. Very dark skies approaching from my south-west, looks good on radar too!!

Thanks Paul, you are so rite, today was better than yesterday. Some impressive dark storm clouds around a while ago!. See that one in the SW on radar, watching it move N, hope it passes here. There's a t-storm below the border in the NE of Ireland now.

Hope you dont mind me sticking these in here Martin.  This is how the sky looked tonight out the back of my house looking south-west, two shots from the bedroom window.
