Convective/Thunderstorm Discussion Spring/Summer 2018

Couldn't see this anywhere so no harm in starting a thread.

Nice high cloud tops here today with strange large ice pellets that are soft and flatten and melt when hitting any surface.

Scarily dark here, but only the odd fat drop of rain.

Edit, curious '+' shaped return just east of Galway at the mo:

Couple of nice flashes and rumbles in Limerick city about 18:45. Netweather shows (to my untrained eye) a nice squall line from Galway down to south Limerick. Bit sleety as well.

Tues looks possible for Thunderstorms / heavy showers over Ireland with an upper vortex, cold upper temps and converging lower winds and at this stage looks like enough cape to produce some sparks, more so over the East. Temperatures about 10- 12C on Tues .

Could be some locally heavy downpours tomorrow with the risk of thunder overland.

Thunder over Athlone with a very heavy hail shower. Sounded like golfballs hitting off the sheet metal roof
