New storm warning after tornado


uk.news.yahoo.com

Britain could be braced for more thunder and lightning after a "special" type of storm swept across the country, bringing with it a tornado to some areas.

Forecasters said there was a "definite chance" of further thunderstorm activity after an unusual "supercell" storm travelled through the south Midlands on Monday afternoon, bringing rain, large hailstones, and a tornado in Oxfordshire.

Brendan Jones, forecaster at MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said it was unlikely there would be another supercell storm in the coming week, as they require very specific

Don't know how I managed to miss the supercell stuff, but looks as though summer may well be off the cards this year.

The weather seems to be getting more crazy by the week, and with sunspot 1476 on its way round to face off with us, who knows what is to come in the next few weeks.

As the source suggests, the chances of a another supercell storm are remote, but I wonder with the current climate (pun intended) just where in the country the next bout of extreme weather will surface.

Normally this time of year I am already onto a nice bit of colour, and have had some great picnics in the park. At this rate I don't see that happening this year


Any chance of a day after tomorrow ?


The additional links talk about sunspots, and climate change, one for, and one article against. Not sure about the one for, as to whether it is a reliable source, but I included it anyway, for your rip my heart out, and stamp on it pleasure.

While I'm not sure just how your weather functions over there across the pond, the phenomenon you are referring to is called "training". The same storms form over an over and over in the same general spot, leaving areas with 6+ inches of rain and flash flooding in smaller streams. And yes, they can drop tornadoes. This is pretty common throughout the USA, and especially in "Tornado Alley".

What does this↑ mean?


It's called 'Spring'. It happens every year.
Often, when warm moist air collides with cold dry air, a storm may be born.

Definitely. Then there will be another day after that one.
And another. And another. And another. And another.............

Well if you read my op, then you would know, it means by now, I'm not hanging out for my dose of vitamin D, and my kids aren't driving me banana's because they want to go to the park (too muddy, and raining evey 5 minutes).

Mind you March was nice, thats when spring begins you know


By the way, you make me laugh


Of course there is going to be a day after tomorrow, just a shame it won't be me in a pair of shorts enjoying the outdoors.

in the OP's link it states 'a special type of storm'

what a load of bollocks.
The UK has these 'special storms' every year and so do other countries.

The UK also has over 30 tornadoes a year.
This is only getting reported more as the population expands on this little rock.

I do however think that this year the UK will have some nice beefy thunderstorms.
No basis but just hoping.

Indeedy, and just as well, because the thought of freezing upon exposure doesn't sound too fun

I do hope so, I love thunder, and lightning.

Never see enough of it.

The supercell is rare for England, and some other places. Yet common in others.

I love the name personaly.
