Skywatch Friday - Local Storm

Last Tuesday we had a brief break in the heat when a thunderstorm blew through Tulsa.  It was part of the 20% chance of rain that is a permanent part of our summer weather forecast.  It cooled things down and settled the dust for a little but was more thunder than  rain.  This year we will take whatever we can get.  We have had 100F+ most every day since early June and the western part of the state is blowing away.

Nice pic Bill, you captured very well the cooling off effect of the front coming through.

I cannot begin to contemplate regular 100 degree days of heat. My husband and I once experienced a day in San Francisco where it reached 104 degrees - coming from England we almost ended up as a double puddle on the pavement!

Wow, it has been hot where you are. Here our summer hasn't even begun. The cloud photo is beautiful...very dramatic.

Nicely captured. The few showers have provided a bit of relief for us. And August isn't here yet.

Your neck of the woods has really been in a heatwave/drought! Great shot of the storm clouds.

Glad for the brief respite from the heat and broiling sunshine..I heard on our local new network in Seattle that there is a terrible drought going on across the south... I hope and pray for relief soon!

Really nice sky watch picture. We've had boring skies here in Southern CA. Storms to bring in lovely skies.

We hit 108* today here in the OKC area. Whew! I just stay in doors, unless junkin' calls me to go look for more vintage treasures! I tolerate heat better than most, but the 100's plus humidity is a killer.
