That is really high. I wonder how they arrived at that TAF. Will be interesting to see what develops.
It seems they weren’t wrong – this is the metar:

Is it possible to get a lightning strike between a FL100 CB base, and ground? According to e.g. this it is clearly possible.

BTW, this is not a FL100 base, this is a 10’000 ft AGL base, so potentially even higher than 10’000 ft AMSL. In the case of LFQQ that difference is marginal however with aprx 150 ft Elevation.
I flew past this earlier from LFAT to LFQA. The sky was CAVOK except about a 30nm stretch where you could clearly see a CB buildup from about 10000ft. A bit of deviation to the right worked out well, before clearing it and turning back on course. At one point I was getting a bit close to the Paris class A but it worked out ok. Was really odd to see a cloud like that so high.
These kind over Ile de Ré this evening (sh..t can’t upload from Android…)
Works here, S10e, Chrome
What I think doesn’t work with Android is multiple image upload in one go, although as with all these things it is likely to be browser and OS dependent.
I’d say those are at best TCUs, no?
I don’t think there is much lightning or rain in those high altitude build outs but you will get load of turbulence and windheer, saw one last 2 weeks not a single strike on the stormscope and don’t think it got wet anywhere along, flying nearby under (slowly) was almost a non-event as long as you keep some blue above
