Welcome to the StormHour Photo of the Week competition.
The competition is run in conjunction with The Royal Meteorological Society who are kindly offering their 2019 Calendar, featuring 24 spectacular winning and shortlisted images from the Weather Photographer of the Year 2018 competition
April showers dominated the entries this week with an amazing rainbow display winning.
As always the final decision is very subjective and a difficult choice has to be made from so many great entries. Thank you to @RMetS for judging and we hope you enjoy their choice and the best of the rest beneath.
