On the 28th June 2012 the UK experienced some severe weather due to a destabilising warm plume moving north east. This caused heavy rain, flash flooding and thunderstorms in Wales, central & eastern areas of England. A developing thunderstorm which began in central Wales developed multicellular, possibly supercellurar, characteristics whilst across Leicestershire, producing tornados and large hail. Another area of storms in a pronounced line squall moved east across N England as well causing flash flooding in many areas.
For discussion on the events have a look at the threads below.
Tornado and large hail in Leicestershire.

UKww would be pleased to hear from anyone who has any information on the tornados and large hail. Either post in the above threads or in the general Convective Chat thread.
To read more technical details on the storm have a look at the forecasting thread for the day.
Acquainting yourself with the UKWeatherworld Management Team
Ever wondered who is behind the UKweatherworld management team? You, our members, are the driving force that keeps the forum going. With your input and opinions, we have managed to amass a wealth of knowledge and information that rivals some of the biggest weather forums in the world.
A diverse team of dedicated and hard working individuals make up the UKww management team. Together, we ensure that the site runs smoothly and our members get the most out of the threads and information shared. The management team are responsible for editing, front end content input, technical web design, forum management, the commercial side of UKww and more besides. Much of the work they do is conducted in the background but I would like to take this opportunity to thanks our management and moderator teams for the time they spend voluntarily, ensuring that UKww remains an accessible, useful and easily navigable resource .
So without further ado, please take some time getting to know us all a bit better.
We have put together a page that outlines our own backgrounds and interest in the weather.
