The heatwave continues. Yesterday many places got 32°C or more, my thermometer measured 35,1°C!
Yesterday afternoon a couple of airmass thunderstorms formed over central parts of The Netherlands. They were fun to watch, but not that impressive. In the evening a more organised storm passed the country form east to west. It became a straightline wind event! Also a couple of nice CG's.

Yesterday evening showers and storms returned to The Netherlands. Southern parts of the country got some active thunderstorms. I saw a couple of weak ones over Soest.
Today a surface low combined with a very unstable airmass caused many showers and storms to form. Reports of thunder and soft hail and even three spouts/tornadoes were observed!
Temperatures are quite low though.

A couple of fine summerdays with no precipitation here in central Holland. With highs between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius and lots of sunshine it was very pleasant.
I hope to update my site soon!

A low in the upper air caused locally heavy storms today. Some produced thunder and in Lottum, Limburg, fell more than 50 mm rain.

July 10 2002:
After two days with warm temperatures, thunderstorms formed and less warmer air moved in.
I've chased one of these storms in Flevoland, which was quite active. It had a nice shelf cloud and produced torrential rainfall and high wind gusts. No nighttime lightning photography unfortunately.
Chaselog July 9.
