June 28 – I just saw the new Independence Day movie and now most storm clouds keep reminding me of that. It’s not just shelf clouds, but that explosive roll that suggest it might have some fire and perhaps a spacecraft behind it. What hit Maryland today was spectacular in its own right, in many ways. My earlier post suggested the strong line would be enhanced by the winds off of the Bay, and they were indeed! Severe Thunderstorm Warnings followed the progression of this line from 4 PM through sunset. The display across the sky covered everything from incredible storm clouds, vivid lightning, and vivid rainbows. The video below of lightning in front of an Owings Mills home is just ridiculously close!
I am honored to have received so many amazing images capturing the storm, and it was tough to sort out what to share. But I had to and below they are in three categories: Clouds, lightning, and rainbows. But there is overlap. Thank you to all that shared. Credit attributed in each image. Please let me know what you like best.
