An active cold-front approaching from the west into warm air over the British Isles triggered some of the most aggressive thunderstorms seen in years across parts of western Scotland and the Lake District. The cooler air subtly lifted the warm air situated over the British Isles in a North-Westerly direction

Ron Stirling of Glasgow was one of many to witness these impressive thunderstorms as they developed strongly along the coast and moved inland. He took this impressive shot of lightning hitting a building.



The following youtube video is a compilation created by Ron Stirling which includes BBC Scotland coverage where his footage was used.
