Each week we publish the StormHour Photo of The Week competition winner on this page.This picture is also pinned on our Twitter profile for the week, posted on our Facebook Page, added to Instagram and included in our newsletter. Full credit is always given to the photographer and any relevant links included.
The weekly photographic competition is judged in association with The Royal Meteorological Society, whose mission is to "promote meteorology as a science, profession and interest"
RMetS are kindly offering their 2018 calendar as first prize in our weekly competition. The Calendar features the stunning shortlisted images from the Weather Photographer of the Year 2017; a competition ran in partnership with the Royal Photographic Society. You can follow the society on twitter @RMetS
As always the final decision is very subjective and a difficult choice has to be made from so many great entries. Thank you @RMetS for judging and we hope you enjoy their choice and the best of the rest beneath!

The Best of the Rest
Cool sky during the severe thunder & Lightning storm that came through Littleton at sunset time. Took this shot from my balcony that faces south. @StormHour #StormHour #POTW pic.twitter.com/nmjRYAHstU— Jenn Cornelison (@jenndenver) June 7, 2018
A spectacular way to end our tour of the Great Plains. I was very lucky to capture this massive CG strike in front of Courthouse and Jail rocks in Nebraska earlier this evening. #StormHour #POTW #newx pic.twitter.com/w2TgqmUWVt— Richard Martin-Barton (@RMBwx) June 8, 2018
Brightness out towards the Duddon Estuary this evening, but the odd drop of rain overhead - and is that some Kelvin Helmholz cloud (if a little ragged) @StormHour #StormHour #POTW pic.twitter.com/IZvDTyHvlx— Jude@green (@JUDITHM58257161) June 2, 2018
