Brian, that's a beautiful image/pano of the explosive convection today....very impressive. Wish I could take images as good as that!. Great stuff  Smiley

Two thunderstorms from Maghera today. One in the distant NE booming away for a long time, the other in the S over Slieve Gallion heading E. This one produced regular blue i-c and c-g lightning and great rumbles of thunder. Great updraught and anvil on it with flanking line behind it. Sky was very dark. It passed by to the side so I had the treat of not getting soaked and watched the storm in a t-sthirt while getting a tan. The convection which was followed was phenomenal, stunning towers and cells which kept passing over all afternoon. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a funnel cloud or even weak tornado report from N. Ireland today!

Update: John McConnell from Maghaberry is reporting a possible weak funnel.
