Title: Sat Image - Lands End Storm
Post by: JohnC on June 22, 2011, 11:32:03 am
We have sone very unstable air again here and I was about to go out and thought I'd check the  radar images to see what's heading our way- quite a lot from the Midlands and NW but I saw what in the south Atlantic might be a tropical storm . Any ideas ? 11.30 when I looked .Unfortunately it's heading to France.

Monday could be the big day John, high CAPE in the form of a Spanish Plume heading over England, around 2000 CAPE - yikes  :)

Monday it is then,Martin. I assume that's nothing of note  over Lands End then ?

Just regular cloudy skies here now (2.15pm) I can get a few jobs done,no need to go out.
