Anyone know where you can access the lighting strike count for the US for today? There's have been an incredible amount of lightning activity across the gulf states today!


This any good ?

Some convection taking place in the midlands at present moving NE. The odd sferic is possible id say.

Day 2 Convective Outlook
VALID 06:00 UTC Mon 24 Apr 2017 - 05:59 UTC Tue 25 Apr 2017

ISSUED 17:37 UTC Sun 23 Apr 2017

ISSUED BY: Dan

On Monday, a sharpening upper trough will slide slowly SE-wards across the British Isles, driving a cold front southwards and eventually introducing an Arctic airmass overnight into Tuesday. Given strong flow aloft along the cold front, some elements of line convection will be possible, albeit in a rather messy fashion and generally lacking in any sufficient depth to be concerned over lightning potential.

However, ahead of the cold front, hints of surface troughing will likely help the development of some low-level convergence on Monday afternoon / early evening, sufficient to generate a few moderately-heavy showers over S/SE England. Overall convective depth is likely to be too shallow for lightning activity, but have issued a low-end LOW threat level to highlight the area with some very marginal potential for isolated lightning activity.

Farther north, more significant instability will develop through the evening and overnight as the upper trough and associated cold airmass drives southwards. During the night hours, the most intense convection will be found over seas and hence affecting windward coasts, and here the lightning potential will be greatest (albeit still considered a LOW threat level in any given location). Small hail and gusty winds will be possible with some of these wintry showers (along with the associated risk of snow accumulations, especially on high ground). A few cold air funnels (or brief tornado/waterspout) will also be possible.

I wonder will there be a bit of activity along the N and NW coasts later tonight ?

No thunder observed here near Tralee but some impressive cloudscapes with good sunshine all day. Not much precipitation in Tralee , few big drops and side swiped by a hail shower . Outside Tralee I got 4.0mm in the gauge. Good few sferics around the country .

Big hail/ rain shower here atm.

Tralee at 15.30

Slight possibility of a couple of rumbles tomorrow I would think.
