I have been quite busy last week and this is the reason why I didn't post them before.

In the other hand, this 2005 year is being quite boring if we talk about severe weather in Spain. I hope general atmospherical situation could change in the next weeks :roll:

Ok. Here are my photos. Enjoy:

Firstly a nice sunrise:

And now, the single-cell storm showing a nice shape. It developed last 11th may:

Unfortunately, there is nothing more interesting than that about weather... :cry:
 
I like that one towards the NE on the sat pic, looks like it is in better shear, and better isolation. Was it possible for you to chase, or is it too far?

I think your storm is multicell ?
 
Stupid me, I didn't save the radar images for that storm... Echos were not too much high, around 42 dBz only. I remember them very well and they didn't suggest a multicell storm. The resolution for our radar images is much poorer than USA radar images and we can not see them in Doppler mode :roll:

Answering to your question about the other storms, they were too far; I took the photographs just 15 minutes after work (I went out at 18:30 local time, 16:30GMT). The storm located at the NE, just in the S side of the Pirynees, and the other one located at the E of me, were around 300 kms from my location... Almost impossible to chase...
 
Not only are the storms beautiful, but the scenery is Awesome! Spain looks like a wonderful place!

Great pics!
 
You had some nice cells there as well, too! 8) Congrats!

Also I must agree, there was pretty boring in the last week or two also here. Just boring sunny days, but its slowly becoming hot, hopefully a nice cold front next week can bring us some interesting severe events after this!
