Hi  

That was very interesting but had airline routes on it

This one hopefully is clear

 


Looks like an interesting lightning storm occurring right now in the Hartland, North Devon location.

@HelloDuck    Ahem !.... that is the same map....

Ahem!... if you click on the icon that looks like a wifi mast... you can get the receiving stations and those lines you call "airline" routes, are the reception routes from the lightning flash to the receiving stations, ( they pick up the interference "crashes" made by the lightning !   )

Re: It`s a bit warm today !

Pretty sure whilst sitting here, at my Mac in South East Laaaaaadan (I have to say that as I have a cockey accent), I just heard thunder.

Oh Well as Fleetwood Mac said, I will have to walk to my village. 10 min walk and I don't order on-line as I prefer the exercise to get something done.

Re: It`s a bit warm today !

Yesterday the BBC hour-by-hour forecast had London down as thunderstorms from some time tonight until about midday Friday.  This evening they forecast thunderstorms at 8 a.m. and midday Friday with light cloud and sunny spells inbetween (still 27C forecast though).

@RobPN 

Hartland is my favourite walking location. The Romans called it the Promontory of Hercules. Superb scenery.

Re: It`s a bit warm today !

Every time I look at the BBC hour-by-hour forecast the storm has moved on by an hour. First due at 8am this morning now showing 5pm.

Where I live someone measured for a replacement bridge when the railway line was being electrified the conversion was done incorrectly and it was a foot short  

Should only have one range

@TTman Very NE of Sheffield - and it's moving away fast. Can still hear the odd rumble, but no flashes here in the SW, and my RS noise line is holding much steadier.

@TTman Good.😉

For once, we have been spared - although the Met Office is still threatening it until 1900. TBH, I doubt it.

Re: It`s a bit warm today !

It started in the Channel Islands, late afternoon... was expecting a drift north easterly, to hit us about 3 am... no... just a bit of rain... reckon it must have gone more easterly along the channel to Dover this morning..

Been a lovely day here... wall to wall blue sky... temps down a bit on yesterday... 28.5 max today..  about 25 now..

 

Have a nice day y`all ! ! !>.
