This was a typical Multicell generated by a purely unstable convectional air mass following a line of convergence. This resulted in some spectacular cumulonimbus cloud formations. The day was warm; about 20C for the max, and the convection was forming behind a cold front that went through earlier.



The storm generated multiple C-Gs near the front of the cell where the updraught zones were. The thunder was high-amp in some discharges.

It moved away within half an hour of it arriving in the Macclesfield area and proceeded to more northern areas.
