Cool and overcast with fresh breeze from the wouth west. Lost of low stratus moving rapidly out to see quite close overhead.
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.
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.
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.
Cloudy, light breeze, warm.
Herne Bay, near sunset, calm and mild. Mulitple layers of clouds lit up in different ways. Cirrostratus and a bright contrail above. Shaddowed stratocumulus below.
Herne Bay, about 8 in the morning, mild weather with light winds. Significant amounts of high cloud, cirrostratus and also more granular cirrocumulus. Featured image is a an overhead zoomed in study.
Herne Bay. Warmish with light and variable winds. The crystal clear visibility remains. (Have we just got cleaner air because of lock down?) A thin and broken stratocumulus layer alows sunlight to break through.
The day started with a thicker low cloud.
Herne Bay, cool and calm. Some stratocumulus towards the horizon. Crystal clear visibility. Stunning sunset across the Thames Estaury over Sheppey and Southend.
Today is a day when you can watch the clouds develop. The aristream is unstable with respect to sea surface temperatures. There is a hard edge to the lifting condensation level and spirals of cumulus development are evident. Within the space of 5 minutes you can witness cloud currents grow, mature and fade.
