A rather complex pattern will evolve on Sunday, with a largescale upper trough remaining to the west of Ireland, placing the British Isles under southwesterly flow aloft on the forward side of this trough. A surface low and associated frontal rain will slowly clear northeastwards from England and Wales, lingering across southern Scotland. However, the primary focus for deep convection (and lightning potential) will be largely over Ireland and adjacent seas, due to greater proximity to the cold pool aloft and hence a better overall environment with stronger instability (albeit just a few hundred J/kg CAPE) and steeper lapse rates.
