The first storm approaches. This panorama, from Howhill, is a 180° view running from SSW on the left to NNE. The gust front and rain arrived about 15 minutes later. The first signs of the approaching precipitation can be seen coming over the distant moor approximately ¼ of the way in from the left hand side. Cross Fell (893m, 2928') is the slight bump to the left of the rain.
This storm is also illustrated on the Events page.
