I imagine there is little risk but imagine watching that if you were on a plane, might make you nervous about flying.

I wonder if it increases turbulance ?

Often hear pilots requesting course changes when they can see storms ahead..... but it must be a bit of an ATC Nightmare today.... ! !

My Grandson has just flown back from Spain today and he said it was a bumpy ride at times.
