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
As always the final decision is very subjective and a difficult choice has to be made from so many great entries. This week we have had nearly 160 entries! Thank you to Mark @StormHourMark and @RMetS for judging and we hope you enjoy their choice and the best of the rest beneath.
