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.
