My favourite storm year to date and the very year which got me hooked on storms and weather photography. Includes 5 full accounts. This page includes several thunderstorms, crisp convection, mammatus displays and a direct link to the 2007 Noctilucent Cloud Gallery. The main highlights were 5 funnel clouds, including one which came close to touching down as a tornado which warranted a site investigation by TORRO.
|A spectacular golden Mammatus display passed over Maghera on Oct 28th 2007 before sunset producing the best display I have witnessed to date. This was produced by a passing cold front which kicked off some nice convection and even several lightning flashes. A friend and I observed the sudden display during its swift passage over my home. One page report with 8 images. - REPORT.|
