Storms return and a couple of photo props
I have to congratulate my friends and fellow expeditioners Kurt Hulst and Bill Coyle for their lightning captures this week. Kurt's close lightning strike hitting a tree in Michigan is an instant classic, and a daytime shot at that! Last night, Bill managed a shot of lightning hitting Virginia Beach's new Town Center.
As for us, the sun peeking out today is providing enough instability to bring the return of nice convection. Last night, a flurry of lightning passed over the Charleston area, but with saturation-induced fog, there wasn't much of a view of the sky. Today's storms will be slow movers, meaning that flash flooding may be a threat with the stationary frontal boundary still hanging around. This cumulonimbus (viewed from my front door) produced a close lightning strike a few minutes prior as it passed over. With the gift of some instability this afternoon, a better chance of nighttime lightning exists tonight.
