During June 2018, we've all experienced in the UK some very hot weather along with some extraordinary storms. On the Northumberland coast we get some beautiful skyscapes and on one day, in particular, it did not fail to amaze. It's the first time I've seen a shelf cloud and this one was so ominous, you couldn't miss it.
The first photograph above was featured by the Newcastle Chronicle on social media and on their website, to showcase the wonderful weather we've been having recently (I say wonderful because I'm one of the weird people who love wet weather, but how can you not when it can look like this!).
