This storm was a quickly developing storm amongst a cluster of convectional cells that swept over rapidly during the day with a trough-line. It gave about 7 discharges in the local area and a good hail shower over Macclesfield that lasted 2 minutes. The parent low-pressure system associated with these cells was the same that produced T0022 a few days ago. It was fairly windy with high instability in the atmosphere.



The hail ranged between 5 and 7 millimetres in diameter.

The thunderhead development seen as it left the area over the Pennines was amazing with strong nuke-style mushrooming at the rear end of the storm which was very photogenic.
