Thunder and lightning Is considered weird In the Winter.

It takes warmth to geneate the lift an energy to produce the conditions for thunder an lightning storms,

Its July Its The UK

I can assure you there are no warm fronts capable of produceing
Thynder an lighting Clouds.

An as for the gobstopper sixed hail

Ive onle ever seen that one

10 miles away from Pompey. Saw a few flashes in the distance whilst on smoko. London's had a mini tornado too.

I watched Storm Chasers (All 5 Seasons) and they always said Large hail is a a sign of a strong updraught. Combined with hot / cold air fronts and moisture makes good conditions for tornadoes. Look forward to seeing if there are any photos in the media tomorrow.

Well I've been on this earth for nearly sixty years and I can remember many many winter storms with lightning and large hail stones. I dont think its freak weather, I've seen it to many times for it to be labled freak, its just weather.
20 years ago we'd have said "wasn't it rough last night" but nowadays all weather is being labled as freak weather.
50 years ago such weather was welcomed by us kids because the school buses didn't run and we could stay at home, it wasn't called freak weather then either, just rough weather.

The problem is there's so many variations in weather that until you've been around for half a century its difficult to know whats normal. The GW crowd have made good use of this, thats evident by the number of people who see a storm and think its freak weather.

You're safe, Herculaneum's currently getting most of it


Just kidding. I understand that part of the planet's been getting odd weather. A friend who lives in Scotland said the wind was ridiculous.

Uh... There is a little more to lightning production than air currents and their relative temperatures. One also has to factor in the density of particulates in the cloud base, which dictate the number of nucleation points a cloud might have in it, and therefore the formation of droplets or ice crystals within it. I have been in a thunder and snow storm before, where the lightning was created, one must assume, not by warm air currents, but by an enormous amount of friction being created in the cloud base, purely as a result of the amount of solid material being smashed into other little bits of solid material.

Solid grey to the horizon, snow falling at a forty five degree angle, driven by forty mile per hour winds, and lightning reflecting off every snow covered surface. I love the fact that my aviators goggles have tinted lenses!

As a Scot I agree ,,

But to clarify its freak weather for Portsmouth.
I don't know if its because Being the only Island City In the UK an its flat topography affects as
A few years ago 5 or 6 when we had that realy heavy snow fall all over the UK.

People In Pompey where gobsmacked the majority had never seen snow that lasted for days let alone weeks an mnths.
Thirty Winters down hear In Pompey and only had slight snow on 5 occasions .

And only that one wich was off any note

Be Aware

Your avatar possess neither a guitar veiued from near or afar
As I mentioned it doth now possess a star/

Also no matter how I use my senses .

Your Aviator contains neither goggles or lenses.

The image I can see is a bloke on a drinking spree

He looks on the verge of starting to blather sensless.
The only googles that may appear and by majik hook a round his ears,

Will be beer goggles.

And those are indeed always tinted

PS Is this a test if not.

Your seeing a differing avatar from me .
Admititidly I am a far.

Though a man,
Of succinct simplicity,
It all to often,
Falls to me,
To be the one,
Who is most prepared,
When weather taunts,
People run scared,
But into blizzards,
I march on,
Rain and hail,
Through all but sun,
So although my avatar is a boozer,
Think not of me,
As a mere drunken looser,
For I am more,
Than the Rum of my parts,
Pathfinder,
Wayfarer,
A master of the art.

And my aviators goggles have a dark grey tint to them. They are hanging on my wardrobe, next to my boot chains (for gripping ice) and my neoprene balaclava!

I've experienced thunder and lightning in a snow storm. In all my life growing up north in the U.S., I never experienced thunder and lightning during a snow fall until a few years ago. It was the weirdest thing. Both my wife and I looked at each other and couldn't believe it! So I can very much relate to how you feel, lol. The weather has definitely changed over the years.

Last year we had a Polar Vortex, (another new weather anomaly). It was the coldest winter I've ever experienced. It was cold for so long, we didn't even experience a Spring warm-up! The cold frigid temperatures prevented our back door from locking because the cement heaved up causing mis-alignment of the dead bolt.

You have to wonder what kind of weird weather is in store for us in the coming years.

Just to go further to state that:

Lightning isn't that unheard of in Winter in the UK. Last year I experienced a decent sized storm in January as well. In fact it knocked the power out (briefly). Don't remember the date, but I do remember the location, because I was visiting the English Whisky Distillery near Thetford at the time.

Also, the results on the MetOffice Observations page, if set to Lightning, may be surprising. As I type this there seems to be a sizeable amount of lightning over north Germany.

Do you guys call it Pompey so people don't realise you are talking about the hole that is Portsmouth? LOL

And..as was said by others. It's just weather. Or maybe HAARP has been aligned with the chemtrails at the right frquencies to induce Orgone attracting lighting? (joke)

Chuckling. I'd say it all depends on where you're at. I'm in northern wisconsin and I've heard thunder snow a few times, but this was all in the past few years. Prior to that, I never heard thunder snow here (and I'm 43), so I'd say for me, it's a rather new phenomenon. Large hail, powerful lightning and tornadoes in London...in January..yeah, I'd say it's safe to call that "freak" weather. The poster said it's the first time he's seen that living in the UK, so, I guess that would make it a rare phenomenon. Thanks though for your efforts in reassuring everyone all is right in the world of weather.
