Just checking out the weather sites; interesting radar plot not matched by the QNH.

When you get a long, straight feature running radially out from the centre, then it is usually something obscuring the radar signal (crane, balloon, etc). So that long straight cell is just an artefact. The rest is normal convective weather.

Looks like that line was a real storm, since it grew and moved from there. First time I have seem anything like that...

I think its my fault.

whenever I top up my pool, rent a jack hammer or similar, plan to pour concrete or paint, its almost guaranteed to come pissing down with little notice.

I need to start selling my services to the farmers :lol:
