Tropics going nuts
NHC activity map
I don't have any real commentary to post about this, but it's worth a mention that we are on the verge of possibly having four simultaneous tropical systems in the Atlantic/Gulf regions.
|OK, I live in Phoenix Arizona, and we had the weirdest lightning storm I've ever seen except for the time I was attending college in Duluth Minnesota in 92', and it was lightning and thunder with 5ft. of snow over 3 days. Last night the sky would light up in a 360 degree format, but no bolts/streaks of lightning, but would light up blue and green. What causes the coloring?

|Terri, it sounds like you were seeing power flashes (arcing power lines). These can be caused by high winds and lightning strikes to live lines. I have an old page on this subject up here.|
