Today was a typical day of heavy showers and isolated thundery showers from the west. A couple of inactive cells rolled over the Macclesfield area earlier in the day before T0028. It had an irregular anvil and was developing as it moved in.

The base was fairly dry as it made its approach as heavy downdraughts were not yet established. Bizarrely the storm appeared to be hovering as much of it wasn't connected to the ground with rain curtains despite the development of the Cumulonimbus structure.

It gave a few high-amp C-Cs in it's lifespan before dissipating as it passed over, giving one last loud C-C. It had a very dark base, emphasized by the contrast between the daylight running underneath it. Most of the heavier storm cells were to the south of the country in the afternoon.
