May 24 2016 – Nice Shelfie! With 19 days of rain this month, something had to give to get spring back in here. The eruption of storms on Monday afternoon may have done just that with an impressive display of lighting and hail in some spots. Many more did get to witness the shelf cloud that often develops ahead of a strong storm. What was unique was that this arrived from the east in the afternoon, so in some cases was able to be lit by the sun in the western sky. Here are the top photos I was sent from across the area… they are only grouped in alphabetical order of location. Elkton saw quite a show with 6 photos making the list here.
Before the shelfies, I have two things I need to share. First… here is an ominous view over Baltimore from Pam Ford. I know this looks like a funnel, but I think it is a S.C.U.D. cloud (scattered cumulus under deck)
Incredible Hail Video! A follow up to my prior post on the hail storm that hit York County, PA- here is how impressive it was in Red Lion (just outside of York)
