Nice thunderstorm here in Alghero this evening. Some nice CGs, including one very close (<1 km) over the water near the beach. A couple of boats/yachts were right in that area at the time but my view of them was blocked by some palm trees as I was sheltering under a building. Here's a radar shot from right then (right under the red blob).

We don't get thunderstorms in Ireland except once every 20+ years. A few rumbles of thunder and a flash of lightning is not a thunderstorm, that's about the best we get most of the time in this country and even those are rare.

Yeah it's something else compared to what I'm used to alright. I remember my last memorable one being a crazy one about 10 years ago out over the Irish sea from Meath coast. Looking at the strike map rightow these are over 50km away from me and I can see clear as day.

What about the November 2010 thundersnow? I thought it was a decent one, the best I've seen in this country. I wish I can experience it again, it's my favourite snow event

Was out in Fuerteventura the last week and it was very hot. Temps of 31.5 degrees locally Wednesday to Friday and up to 30 on Saturday. Looks like we were lucky with the weather as locals said it was hot and dry for the time of year. Big shock to the system to be back in this cooler climate! Bbbrrrrrr!

No idea where to post, but I went on a short holiday(?) to wicklow yesterday, up Djouce, which has a nice covering up top. Very clear morning on the way up, 10 mins from the top a cloud moved in and dumped a bit more snow, then moved off again
