There has been a lot of action over the UK these last few days and nights with many thunderstorms, impressive shelf clouds, funnel clouds, and several damaging tornadoes!. There's too much detail to cover but I thought I would simplify the task my just adding several video clips, images and links to show exactly what has been going on. Some of these are great!  Smiley

Some have said the above clip could be fake but I don't buy it



Great shelf cloud

This one is from Cork, Ireland on June 5th, same day we seen the meso over the Lough.



There are more to add.

Thanks for bringing all these together Martin-real eye candy.   Can't believe how much the weather has ramped up this past week in the UK and Ireland and the amount of sightings like these is staggering-please may it continue!! Smiley

Good stuff. I think that's a genuine clip too  because of the way it's been shot. The shelf cloud is great.
