I spotted this storm to the east where a weak and feathery-looking anvil had formed, so I started to train the camera on it just in case a good discharge came out of it. It was producing a bit of lightning as it approached given away by distant thunders but the camera didnít pick up any visible lightning. I also saw a faint double-C-G embedded within the precipitation curtains. The camera was pointing in the right direction however it was too faint to pick it up.

It then passed and continued eastwards giving way for a much larger cell which at this time was definitely too far away to see the lightning. However there was a rumble of thunder so that might have come from a C-A or P-F. After that one had passed, another large cell drove its way in from the WNW, (see Thunderstorm 0017).
