Not much to tell on this one. I caught sight of it as it trundled just to the north-west of Macclesfield. Heavy instability from the south along a trough with associated returning polar maritime air-mass brought up the development of some fairly active thunderstorms across the country, most of which missed the Macclesfield area. The cloud bases were quite low that day reflecting high dewpoint in seasonally average temperatures.

The cell that came closest was still in its developing stage and wasn’t very electrified, however it managed to give a distant C-G and C-C strike that made sure it landed up in the storm archive record.
