This brute came in from the west just before teatime, and when it hit the wind rose and the temperture
dropped quite suddendly. It took up the whole sky from NW to SW and the rain......well I'll let the image
speak for itself!

Wow!. These are the kind of storm structures I love. That's a nasty looking gust front, quite a beast. Love the precip curtain falling from it, and you picked up the rain in dramatic fashion. The two images make for a very effective story board....

Image 1, approaching gust front

Images 2, downdraught/outflow cold wind and rain.

Surprised you didn't get a c-g out of that. Radar certainly looked interesting today. There was a t-storm in Ballymena.

Thanks for sharing those.

Thanks Martin, thought you would like those! I was surprised there was no c-g from that one, and I was also
expecting another funnel but nothing happened. Maybe next time Wink
