Just a few images taken today. Thunder started rumbling late afternoon for a good hour or, after the storm passed I jumped in the car and headed West, It wasent long before I drove straight through torrential rain leaving some parts of the carriageway down to one lane.

These are beauties Anton!, they really capture the mood of the atmosphere very well indeed. Love the altocumulus castellanus above the road in the first image  Smiley. Keen an eye out for more storms today.

 Great to see these convection  photos. being posted, very dramatic,Anton. Good convection here too (1743) and the CAPE is 500 if I've read it correctly. Will get out shortly to grab a few shots - about to have tea. I did go out an hour ago but was a bit early, got back home and you can guess the rest but it's going  up well atm.

Unfortunately this is heading NW  over Wales  http://www.sat24.com/gb
