Thunderstorm Outlook 22-26 August
The last few days were not successful in catching any sprites - storms happened mostly over northern Italy and some weak ones over the western Mediterranean, it is far and clouds were sometimes blocking the view. Going by the model forecasts, a high pressure area is going to be present over western parts and this is no good for thunderstorm development. Perhaps as we get closer towards the weekend, isolated storms could form over Spain.
