Isolated severe storms developed on Tuesday afternoon, along the Lake Okeechobee and Florida East Coast sea breeze boundary convergence zone. These storms formed along a well established boundary that ran from western Martin County northeastward into St Lucie County. I shot the above picture while looking northeast towards the backside of these storms, as I was focused on addition storms southward over Glades County.
I quickly realized I was on the wrong boundary after watching and filming overshooting tops one after another for over 45 minutes on the storms to my east in St Lucie County. I had a beautiful view of these storms, and shot several pictures and HD video as they continued to back build along the boundary into Martin County.
Later in the evening on the local news (WPTV 5), they showed several viewer shots of a small rope-like tornado west of Ft Pierce, FL that was associated with the above storm. One of the pictures showed a tornado on the ground with a dusty debris cloud somewhere north of SR 70.
I was impressed with the few isolated cells that did developed today, making for some awesome wide view storm structure photography. Hopefully, there will be more lightning storms tomorrow to entertain my afternoon and evening.
