Spout time 17-6-2016

Some days you can be planning to be in the right area but not specific for chase reasons......

Visiting a museum in Hellevoetsluis several spouttype funnels (probably full blown waterspouts on the 'Brielse Meer) were seen to the Northwest.
In the evening after a walk near the 'Rhoonse Grienden' I saw the beginning of what was to become a long living spouttype funnel. I came closeby on the edge of Spijkenisse.
Below a short video of the chase.















Some interesting stuff 2015

Mostly september showed some interesting convection.

Some wanna be supercells in spring 2014.....

Spring season unto now did not know very interesting convection that I managed to see or reach. Around Pentecost (June) several set ups looked favorable, but......

Some examples of convection I did see on april 25, may 9, 10, 22 and 23.

Early winter convection; a line of interesting cells.

The warmest 'third of Januar' since the Dutch temperature measurements started (AD 1901) was followed by the passing by of a line of TSTMS. Some of them were suspect of having rotational updrafts.
I departed from work somewhat earlier tot have the chance to drive through them.......

Great mammatus displays: 10-11-2013

A week after the tornadic supercells another surprise was in store. This Sunday a trough with temps of -30 C at the 500 Hpasc. level passed the Netherlands bringing some storms. There were no chances for real severe weather events, although I wouldn't have been surprised to see a landspout. Great was the mammatus display at around 16 hrs. LT.
(Unlike the Sunday before I did'nt want to miss the 17 hrs. church service to see even 'more of heaven' overthere ;) ; so I somewhat had to hurry).
I was glad I had chosen the right position and the CB took the right position in front of me.
The CB by the way had a beautiful 'Rain Free Base'; but cells of the 'last week Sunday kind' were shearwise not possible.
