VIDEO: Dramatic front and shelf cloud from UK thunderstorm

It’s not too often we get footage of dramatic clouds or thunderstorms from England, however this video shows a dramtic frontal cloud moving into Kent last week.

The video was taken in Lydd on the Romney Marsh, Kent, UK on a Sony Ericsson W995 video.

About 30 seconds into the video there is something that streaks across the sky – any ideas what that is? Looks too fast to be a bird!

Impressive cloud action…especially for England!

There was a big discussion regarding this on the weather forums over here and it was concluded by the resident experts, (whom have extensive experience as storm chasers) that this was in fact a supercell, not simply a dramatic frontal cloud.

To give a different view of it (I hope you don’t mind me linking this?) this picture shows the circular nature of the cloud formation.
