Again, with a shortage of Spanish Plumes, southwest England was left to produce home-grown convection, which isn't usually that good. So I went to the states to hunt down some real storms (coinciding with one of the few plumey events to hit SW England in May).

    2008
Moved to Hampshire. Was a very quiet year in the south with the Jet-stream sinking into the continent (as last year)...

  2007
Storm season kicked off early with T0068 in March with a wintry hail shower, then.... not a lot really. The handful of storms Macclesfield, Cheshire UK experienced this year were weak-affairs from showers. Strong heating never took hold this summer as the jet-stream never got that far north of the UK, so limited fuel for monster storms. The year ended on an active note however with T0072 producing some distant but photogenic multi-C-G discharges.
T0072 - 08-07-2007 - 18:30 - Macclesfield, Cheshire UK - Multiple C-G producer seen from a distance to the north

Plenty of storms this year including many C-G generators. Introducing this year a semi-professional digital video camera for T0064+. I was unavailable to film a few of the storms but most of the bigger ones to hit Macclesfield, Cheshire UK were documented. There was an absence of night time storms this year which is a blow, however warm weather in October meant the storm season extended into Autumn, an unusual occurrence for the North West.

2005

Not impressed with my personal timing this year. I missed a few exceptional storms in Macclesfield, Cheshire UK due to driving the breadth of the country (T0055) and revelling the joys of full-time work. Unfortunately the "storm of the year" title had to go to one that I have no footage of, but it left its mark on much of Central England and the news. I also missed the beginnings of T0058 which would have proven worthy of filming if I had got to it in time after work....sigh.

------------------------------------------------------------   ------------------------------------------------------------
  2004 
Back on track this year with some good storms documented. Kicking off with a picturesque wintry cell, then some excellent night-time C-C action from a slow-moving T0049 (in the same league as T0011 and T0024) where it's entire lifecycle of birth and death was documented. A small shooting vortex was then spotted in the distance with F0001, and finishing off with another picturesque cell with a huge arcus-cloud formation (T0054). It was almost a coin-toss between T0049 and T0054 for "storm of the year", but T0049 won it on thunder and lightning.

  2003
Minimal storms filmed this year as I was in Reading, Berkshire UK, Berkshire for much of the spring and summer Reading, Berkshire UK Meteorology at university. However whilst I was down there I managed to film an absolute belter from the balcony of my hall of residence.

------------------------------------------------------------   ------------------------------------------------------------
  2002
Another quiet year (from my point of view anyway) as I went away for an entire month in July and missed a few of absolute monster storms. What I did capture was a photogenic passing storm, a strange moderate shower cell with elongated C-C, and a cracking multiple-storm-cell cluster with some good lightning and cloud shots.

This year sees some more surprising action around Macclesfield, Cheshire UK; a strong mesocyclone produced by proceeding cells of T0027, which lead to produce a multi-vortex funnel. T0022 produced some excellent thunder from off-camera C-Gs. Also some astonishing lightning displays from T0024, sporting long C-C spider lightning and anvil-crawlers.

1998
This year sees some great action from a variety of thunderstorm styles, including T0011 with a seriously explosive thunder. Then, T0014 revealed that it was rotating tightly and produced a funnel cloud that appeared to touch down briefly. T0019 gave a good hail shower and some active C-G strikes, and T0020 and T0021 proving that lightning can still happen in north-west England so late in the year.

  1997
The third year spotting sees the arrival of a Hi-8 analogue video camera and some lightning images at last, and I set out in hope of capturing some images. The first streak I captured was from T0004, a double C-C discharge, then T0005 brought some night-time C-Gs. Ps0001 was a passing storm which was quite spectacular giving a display of P-Fs and C-As.

  1996
The second year of storm spotting also, unfortunately, involved my tape recorder. The first major storm was T0002 which had a total active duration in Macclesfield, Cheshire UK of over 3 hours consisting of multiple cells. I audio recorded this storm and still have some of the good thunder on cassette (now converted to MP3). The second storm T0003 was an active daytime C-G generator. Again, no footage or audio recordings were retained apart from a photo of the cloud-base in the distance.
T0003 - 23-08-1996 14:00 - Macclesfield, Cheshire UK - Distant active C-G generator (no footage)
T0002 - 07-06-1996 20:45 - Macclesfield, Cheshire UK - Highly active night-time storm (audio-taped)

  1995
First year of storm spotting, however without a video camera (as I was only 12 years old) I was limited to using a tape recorder! Previously I would be glued to the window during any storm, until one day I started trying to document the thunder. I only ended up taping one storm for 1995 (T0001), however I no longer have the tape and don't have any audio samples to offer. I still logged it as T0001 and so it debuts the beginning of the storm log.
T0001 - 24-05-1995 16:00 - Macclesfield, Cheshire UK - Weakly electrified cell
