Slow moving showers rolled over the Pennines in the afternoon developing as they moved in an unstable easterly air flow fed in by a weak low pressure system sitting over Brittany. This particular cell that hit the south side of Macclesfield at 17:04 gave a few close weak C-G discharges, one of which was caught on camera. The lightning didnít show up particularly well as it was generally very bright and there was a thick rain curtain making visibility poor.



The shower wave then developed further as it moved southwest with a view of back-building cells to the south.
