Last Night's Lightning
Yesterday was hot and humid. I know I’ve seen many days that were much worse but yesterday seemed pretty rough. I guess I’m just not used to this. When I lived near Philly there were days where it was around 100 and dew point in the 70s or even close to 80.
In the afternoon we were missed to the north and to the south by thunderstorms that prompted server thunderstorm warnings. I still had some hope we might get something but didn’t think it was very likely. When I didn’t expect it I got startled by thunder so I went outside to watch another vivid lightning show. Wasn’t as bad as last week but wasn’t weak either. It was a nice surprise. I think the core of the lightning part of the storm was just tow our souh. It was interesting that the lightning was closest after the rain stopped this time.
The storms with lots of vivid cloud to ground lightning seem to be the theme of this year. I can’t really remember having so much lightning so many times.
Today looks pretty good for storms to develop with the approaching cold front. Should be fun. Hopefully it doesn’t interfere with us going to 4th Thursday over in York but it probably will.
