As T0012 cleared the area, this trailing cell followed it closely to the SE along the squall-line and rolled over the Pennines to the east. This was much smaller than T0012 but it was more active. The discharge rates were about 2-5 minutes, but unfortunately it only skimmed Macclesfield and didnít pass directly overhead. The back-end of the cloud was very dark and there were also tell-tale signs of updraught at the back given away by lumpy precipitation-free cloud bases. I think this storm was also sharing the same anvil as T0012 (merged thunderhead), with it being in such close proximity.

The lightning caught on camera consisted of 1 or 2 faint sheet lightnings, 1 small C-C and one large (but faint) twin low-amp C-C discharge which gave a thunder like firecrackers.
