Breeze And Frontal Boundaries Make Convective Sunset

Sunset orange storm convection.

The same weather system that brought the record amount of tornadoes the last few days across the South, also sent a washed up frontal boundary into South Florida on Sunday. This almost stationary boundary was the focal point for afternoon sea breeze storms over Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. These storms brought much needed rain to the area, but unfortunately it was over a small area of Metro Southeast Florida.

Later into the evening hours, a few more weaker lightning storms developed over interior Palm Beach County along the breeze and outflow boundaries. Looking to my southeast at the time, I was greeted with an awesome view of the deep convection illuminated with the sunset colors. I’m hoping tomorrow will bring more chances of isolated storms with some lightning photography opportunities.
