Another one they missed

Quite a large thunderstorm and cumulonimbus cloud developed close to the coast of northern France at around 15 UTC this afternoon, you can see the anvil clearly in the 1645 UTC visible satellite image, along with some fairly intense rain marked by the odd while pixel in the weather radar image at the same time. This storm formed with daytime temperatures of around 22°8C over the land, but I can’t see it surviving long over the cold waters of the English Channel as it heads towards the Isle of Wight this evening, but you never know. Nevertheless along with the area of light rain falling from medium level cloud across southern England, this is the second feature that wasn’t picked up by Meteogroups NWP model of the day – whatever that is.
