AWESOME TIME LAPSE OF THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT IN GERMANY EARLIER TODAY! (credit: Norbert Weichel via Meteo Europe)
DISCUSSION: As a deepening low-pressure system brought heavy rainfall (and even some flooding to parts of Central and Southern Spain earlier today, there were also some nice thunderstorms across parts of Germany! The short time lapse video below shows the evolution of one particular storm which blossomed over Erzebirge, Germany! Note how during the course of this short clip you can make out the region of strongest vertical motion within the developing thunderstorm through seeing the thunderstorm's main updraft rising quickly through the lower-to-middle troposphere!
