We've had a thunderstorm here in Swadlincote, just finished, not unusual for the current unsettled weather conditions, really the same conditions that create April showers, just earlier in the year.

I used to love watching the hurricaines over Calcutta from the multi storey car park at work - the lightening used to streak in a lattice shape across 180 degrees of horizon and up as far as 60-70 degrees high. They were huge storms like I've never seen - usually in the afternoon - by clocking off time the streets were waist high in water, which was gone two hours later and everything dry as a bone again. :)

Was certainly a cracker here in Derby! Not fast enough with the camera though :)


 


Yes, usually expect that sort of thing with the "April Showers" but we actually had similar one night a few weeks back!


 


Looks like it may turn very cold in the next week or so.

Yeh seen it before thanks - tend to look out of the window when it comes to weather predicting. Obviously the real  time aspect is good though, its a nice site. There are quite a number of local Am weather stn's. Nearly as many AStro's
