    THURSDAY 16TH APRIL 2009: Summery Skies and Convection

    After a disappointingly cloudy day on Wednesday that ended with the warmest part of the day at 6pm, Thursday saw the disappearance of the thick haze that had plagued us the day before and allowed for some wonderful congestus cloudscapes to be seen. The temperature climbed to 18.7C in the sunshine and storms built ahead of a cold front to the north.

    11.55am - the first signs of lower level muck clearing away and towers going up to the northwest:

    15.00pm - the towers had matured and began giving downpours over South Wales. Unfortunately, other building clouds in front of them blocked out the view from time to time:

    15.30pm - clear view of the storms over Wales:

    Thanks for watching. :)

    Great photos there, I really like how clear the cloud textures are. :)

    Always good to see photos taken in the UK, there are so few quality photographs of convective activity over here!

    We do, sadly as soon as they reach here they die with a wimper. Although some do survive and we get the occasional thundry shower.
