There was a low filling in to the west with some substantial convective activity happening in the centre given its instability, light winds and abundance of moisture from the surrounding warm autumn seas. It was expected to pass directly over the UK on the Sunday so I had been expecting some activity in the northwest. This particular cell wasn’t very active but it did give a few rumbles of thunder, including a C-C which was just caught offside on camera (only just) which was reported to be directly over Macclesfield Forest by a friend who was there at the time. I would guess given its position this was the likely case.

The cell then continued to move over the Pennines leaving trailing dissipating cells behind mixed in with a bit of drifting Mammatus from the anvil top.
