Had a clear window this morning which was nice as was able to get some solar observation in, however whilst doing this I had one eye on the radar and satellite images.  Just had to rush everything in as the first 'big spots' of rain are falling.  I think thats it for observing for me today - I might have to get me a sunday afternoon bottle of wine now and sit and watch for any interesting clouds coming in...

There's some very bright colours on the radar for ROI atm...   Roll Eyes

Well all the action was in the east, nothing here at all. I observed some good convection away in the distance to the south, towers visible and rain shaft. Got some shots, will post later.

Interesting ... was in Derbyshire at the weekend, there was a prolonged but lightish shower where I was on Sunday afternoon (25th) but travelling a bit later through Buxton there had obviousy been very heavy rainfall (but no damage).
