Here are some of the shots I got between the Thunder & Lightning showers...  Smiley











I was preparing dinner and I had a look out the patio doors and notice the sky getting darker and as I looked up I saw the lightning flash across the sky and an almighty bang straight after it.  It only lasted 4 or 5mins and the sun was shining soon after, the hail was intense and lay on the ground for a few mins...  Grin

Still have a wee video to process but that's not worth much  Sad

Excellent shots Steven.  Smiley
HDR makes them look even more dramatic... but the horizon must remain straight imho  Grin

The 300 or so CAPE about today is producing some very nice convection again, some anvils and good updraughts passing through , some look good enough to produce a funnel.

Some decent CAPE and LI around for N. Ireland and central Ireland on Sun/Mon. Maybe a chance for some t-storms during that period. Will start new thread closer to the time.
