I am sure there was a wee bit of rotation??
« on: July 20, 2016, 06:32:29 PM »
Just had this go past, i am sure there was a little rotation, we had 5mm of rain in under 10 minutes too and its now dropped to 20C, it was 26C just before this hit, My wind speed only picked this up as 15mph, something seriously amiss there, this was easily a 30-40mph gust, its as though the anemometer was in much calmer spot, but its attached to the summer house, one is baffled lol

I does look to be more than 15 mph, Simon, and looking at the Met Office radar (see attached) there's a nice storm over your area at the time.  :wink:

There isn't any tornadic activity forecast, evening though there's a lot of heavy, thundery showers across the UK today. But that doesn't mean there won't be any!!.

Perhaps it was just an eddy that swirled on the roof of the summer house? there was roar that sounded like a train
