KILMERSDON VIDEO DIARY

HERE I WILL PLACE ANY VIDEO OF EVENTS AS AND WHEN THEY HAPPEN OVER THE AREA AS A HISTORICAL REFERENCE

3rd MAY 2015

To open this diary is a short video on a short but intense storm of rain that passed over the village at lunchtime on the 3rd May 2015 on a showery SW airstream. The shower caused surface water issues and a clap of thunder on passing.

19th JULY 2017

The next two videos are accounts of the summer thunderstorm that moved up from the South over us in the small hours of the 19th July 2017 following a couple of hot days. The storm gave frequent lightning with thunder and a deluge of rain and hail

18th AUGUST 2017

The following two 10 minute videos contain the approach and passage of a thunderstorm across the village of Kilmersdon at lunchtime on the 18th August 2017. It was formed in a trough of Low pressure with unusually cold air for August aloft. This led to an increase in normal electrical activity for a thunderstorm of this type not caused by warm humid air at the surface. The thunder and lightning was much more frequent than normal as a result- even moreso after the rain, hail and wind squall passed as the storm matured.
