This was a standard open-cell heavy shower that developed in the polar maritime airmass behind a cold front during a classic mature low. The winds were cool and westerly.

The cell passed to the north of Macclesfield, likely over Poynton/Hazel Grove, only displaying one single discharge in itís time. It was a faint C-C embedded within the rain-curtain and the thunder, because it was so distant, wasnít spectacular but had a lot of bass in it.

 

The cell continued to move ENE over the Pennines silently.
