There very well could be some kind of cap Brian which is one of today's restrictions. Strong solar heating or another form of lift will be needed to break through it. CAPE values over Ireland and N. Ireland this afternoon are between 1000 and 1200 with a lifted index of -3 and -4 so it's an extremely unstable enviornment out there today, as long as the cap can be broken through later. Tony Gilbert mentioned that the upper atmosphere is saturated which could inhibit growth. Worth keeping an eye on the sky today for funnels/waterspouts/tornadoes.
