This storm developed behind a continental occluded front along a trough which moved swiftly up from the south deluging the country in heavy rain. Heathrow saw 44mm in just 5 hours between 2am and 7am in the morning, where the June average is only 51mm!

The storm itself had developed and lied over the Pennines with its west side positioned over us. It gave some brilliant C-C as it moved in before it dissipated in thundery activity and intensified over northern eastern England. The rain, again, wasn't very heavy, but it was windy and the noise pollution from the nearby main road ruined the footage slightly.





As the storm dissipated it gave two distant C-Gs over the Pennines and then fell silent.
