Check out this visual sat image courtesy of Sat24. Note the LP to the W of Ireland with tight rotation. Could be interesting days ahead.

That LP is very tightly wound. Great satellite image.

An Excellent image. I would think the strong winds will be confined to NI and Scotland though.

The leading edge of the approaching frontal system hit here this evening and had a big gust front with weak Whale's Mouth on the E side. Behind it was very heavy rain mixed with hail. I have a few not very good images and a video clip of this. It wasn't the most photogenic in the world but it was very impressive with the naked eye and looked very nasty. This gust front was peceded by the darkest mid level clouds and cu I have seen in a long time. The entire SW sky looked like a huge storm was approaching. Seen some cb cells, mammatus, and updraught towers today also. Things are getting closer to some big t-storms in the not too distant future  Smiley

Cheers Tyler. We have a whole week of this to look forward to. Got some images which I will post soon. Nothing amazing just good to see some convection again.  Smiley
