Nighttime fireworks treat
Summer thunderstorms in west central Florida are an every day event. However nighttime storms, after the sun’s energy is removed to power them, are rare.
With a blocking high pressure area over the Gulf of Mexico recently, the East to West winds that normally blow over Florida during the summer were absent – giving a dry period. The removal of this high, and the heavily laden moist air resulted in this beautiful nighttime fireworks treat.
