Date: 10-07-2004
Time: 10:37 BST
Location:
Macclesfield, Cheshire UK
Type: Shooting Vortex
Documented by: Mark Seltzer
Equipment: Samsung VP-H65 Video Camera
Footage Quality:
VHS
 

Yet again for the third time in my storm spotting history, I spotted mesocyclonic activity to the northwest of Macclesfield in the same position as the tornadoes of T0014 and T0027. I figure as the area is in the "Cheshire Gap" it is relatively flat in that direction, and may aid the development of circulation.

However this was just a shooting vortex  that never reached the ground but prevailed with the development of the storm. There was no thunder or lightning activity at the present time visible from Macclesfield, however there may have been elsewhere. The vortex lasted for about 7 minutes before ascending into the updraft.
