Thunderstorm Outlook: 1-3 August

Currently a powerful storm system is active over eastern Spain. Too bad that our cameras are still in the clouds, though there might be some chance that clearer conditions arrive the next hours from the west for Pic du Midi. The storm certainly looks like a good candidate sprite producer.

Tomorrow the west edge of the upper trough slides over Spain, which will perhaps just allow a storm to form at the east coast, but the focus will shift to Italy, where the upper trough and unstable airmass is going to hang around for a few days. This is a little far from our cameras, unfortunately, but who knows. As high pressure builds up west of us, good conditions for large thunderstorm systems likely stay away for quite a few days.
