Surprise funnel cloud rotating near my home outside Maghera over the Coleraine Road on May 13th 2014 on a day when no thunderstorms were forecast, the funnel appeared from the base of a huge updraught tower which slowly approached from the NW which then erupted in an unstable environment in response to strong surface heating and convergence, this was the earliest funnel I have caught to date with the vortex spotted at 12.55 UT, a nice gift from nature, read the report for more information. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
