The start of the season began calmly as the robbers rolled briskly into the skyline at dusk.

A nice start to the year with a winter rainbow. Or even a cloud arc?

The cloud plate looked perfect for such to appear, and after all, they were visible just around the corner.

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

The monk, which had lived for more than two hours, gleamed non-stop with a magnificent night lightning. At best, the flash density was 1 flash in 15 seconds. I'm not sure if the cell can be sorted as a supercell, but a windstorm was already visible during the day and a supercell was found in Pietarsaari https://www.instagram.com/p/CSYgkyxDEhL/. The VRad radar showed some sort of rotational anomaly at one point for a longer period of time, but let’s classify it as some kind of error. Nice once proper autumn lightning.

Link to youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e26en9mqDII edit: I added the best flashes I forgot before. I wake up at half past twelve and there is an arc echo mcs on the radar. Basic situation. The avalanche was gorgeous, like in the Sylvi storm, and the structure was so layered that I dare to tick the shelf cloud point. Small granules came in the beginning. But after four years of waiting, I finally got to experience being in a downpour. Fresh experience. The bike and tripods collapsed as soon as the gust front arrived and the cap flew into a ditch where I could no longer find it. ...

Tuesday night anvil. In the afternoon, I followed the southeastern cluster of the Gulf of Finland, at the end of which, further north, happy monsters exploded, roaring merrily.

Timelapse: https://youtu.be/OZC2hnMVKtA Traditional sugar mousse day. The downside to storm bonga is that most of the hobby is when you follow rain radar, the sky, and the camera battery alternately for five hours and can’t go anywhere. On top of that, in the early afternoon, the deaf are plagued by drying drizzle stuffed with a plug, but in the evening, a decent anvil surprises and then there is a rush. Something strange happened in the first images when the weakening deaf arrived towards him but surprisingly tense shapes began to form in its base structure. Apparently some kind of avalanche ...

Primary rainbow

A very surprising and happy Friday night moment. First, the strange deaf begins to evolve and approach towards the magnificent evening turbulence, followed by a sunbath shower and a sunbath rainbow. Everything shone in gold. Now it’s nice to start the weekend.

The mid-range QLCS provided a comfortable avalanche cloud and gust front. A bit of lightning happened but there was really nothing left on the cell. Comfortable American mood in a short chase. In the fifth picture, there was a situation where, according to my friend, lightning had struck the field. I barely had time to photograph the dust fumes rising from the field with a couple of shots. I dare probably tick off the lightning hit item.

Joutsa's lovely cauliflowers were visible all the way to Järvenpää, a nice surprise for the evening. It is a pity that the SME region is discriminated against every spring. Hopefully Monday would include even the first rumble of spring.

Several bright halo forms

The best play in a while. Haloh April seems to be replaced by halo for myself, when that’s when they usually show up. It's just annoying that the best moment seems to be around 11-12, but I couldn't get out then. In addition to the brightest 22 ys I’ve seen, I’m also the first 46 to see the pool side, and I’m happy about that.

Antisolar rays

Probably the first counter-cloud rays I have seen. The cloud rays themselves were really strong. Are there any other rays in Figure 2 when there are one below the clouds and also above?

Haloh April is producing results for once. But is there a horizon ring in Figures 3 and 4? I'm not sure

Nice snowstorms on a windy, dry day. Ten minutes from detecting the severest snowstorm what I’ve met.
