This storm woke me up an hour before I had to leave for work (good timing). There had been some thundery troughs moving up the country overnight, riding a slow-moving continental plume, most of the cells just skimming Macclesfield to the south out of view. It was quite tame in Macclesfield when I started filming it but there were one or two loud thunders. The only lightning caught was a crazy C-C spider lightning before it fell silent and moved off into the distance.
