An exceptionally warm may week primed the atmosphere for another round of severe weather. In the night of 28 may a very intense mesoscale convective system, or MCS, developed over Bretagne, France. The 400 kilometer wide beast progressed to The Netherlands, gracing parts of southern England before making landfall near Rotterdam. The system brought moisture, packing the atmosphere with even more instability.
The night of may 29 shaped up to be thé night of the week. After seeing some strong pulse storms, new cells formed further south in Belgium in the late evening hours. The cells had gone high precipitation quickly and contained a very high amount of in cloud lightning due to high Mixed Layer CAPE values.
