A few images from Maghera on Sat of the mulitcell storm which Conor, Declan and I were watching, it was part of a complex stretching from here to the N/NE coast, nice lightning from it and on 2-3 occasions there was rapid rotation under the flanking area. The majestic anvil against a crisp blue sky was the highlight of the day with temps at -45 degrees C at anvil height. The storm knocked the power out and set off car alarms, the video is on another page. Also saw this fantastic gust front at sunset, it was a stunning sight. Here's an image report with larger images...

 Superb shots, a great experience, especially the orange skies. As I mentioned re. the video, as good as those I see in the US .
