At 4.15 AM loud thunders awoke me from my sleep. Looking thru the window I saw bright purple flashes, but no channels. Around 4.30 lightning struck close with thunder after 1 second. I didn't try photography as daylight was approaching. It was a nice surprise!

Last monday and tuesday it was very hot in Holland. Many places reached 30°C, but in northern parts of Limburg (in the southeast) temperature reached 35°C!
Yesterday evening thunderstorms and westerly winds brought much cooler air.
I've chased a couple of these storms at the beginning of the evening.

Last saturday there were some active thunderstorms over southern parts of The Netherlands. As I was staying at my parents place, I haven't seen anything of this activity. In Belgium there were a couple of funnel cloud reports.
The last few days have been quite cool, but today temperatures reached 30°C or more in many places in Holland, for the first time this year.

Arrived at Amsterdam Airport in the morning from a four week holiday in the United States. Pictures from the chases will be online pretty soon.
A couple of digital images with a chase summary can be found here.
Had an active thunderstorm at the beginning of the evening over Soest. Heard about 20 discharges a minute. I couldn't see any lightningchannels though, because of the view. I was too tired to even try a chase.
Removed the Amarillo webcam from my webcampage.
