Just checked the sferics charts Padraig, I can see those lightning strikes plotted to your E. There's more in central and N areas. Currently Ireland and N. Ireland is covered in showers, radar looks very busy, many of these have intensifed since the last update and are turning into storms.

Convection is exploding up here, awesome towering cu with mushroom heads arranged in long lines and expanding in the hot sun. I'm surrounded by large anvils on either side of me here, although they are a little too wispy is profile for my liking. Judging by the updraught quality visible now I think there could be good action today somewhere. Shame about the lack of wind shear though.

Met Office have weather warning out for NI for Mon already.

No one knows the answer to that I'm afraid  Wink

Giant rock solid anvil W of Slieve Gallion, cells and convection are looking serious now. Bound to be a chance of a vortex from these.

Thanks for the report Scott. The convection is serious again today. The cells are producing gusty winds which are lifting my attic door up and down. Storms to the W and SW of NI at moment and wide spread showers. I haven't had thunder yet but the cells and updraughts are incredible, good chance of a tornado from those I should think.

Great stuff Padraig, that looks like a nasty gust front you had passing through, no wonder those winds were violent!.

Here's a video from Sat showing the approaching storm...

The forecast is going for showers tonight, it might be a good time to watch for moonbows.
