Friday 5 June 2020 – cumulus developing to towering cumulus during the day

Herne Bay, about 0830. After a speill of hot settled weather June is beginning with some unseasonably cool blustery winds with showers. Here fields of cumulus build with altocumulus visibily above between the breaks in the lower level cloud.

These atmospherically unstable conditions always provide a good theatre of cloud play.

Later towering cumulus develops with shower and blustery cool winds.

Thursday 4 June 2020 – low stratus, strato cumulus with towering cumulus in the distance

Herne Bay, about 0830, overcast with a fresh breeze from the North. Cool. Frontal weather returns to the North Sea after a sunny spell. Here low stratus scuds past just above, a shower is out at sea with some brighter patches and a hint of deeper convective cloud development. Perhaps this is a cold front clearance in progress.

Wednesday 3 June 2020 – Altostratus and cirrostratus

Herne Bay about 0830. Calm and tranquil, overcast but mild. There is a fairly dense canopy consisting of sheets of medium and upper level cloud; altostratus and cirrostratus. The sun is struggling to make it’s presence known. Some lower strato cumulus shows moisture and activity at a lower level.
