Melbourne Beach FL Gust Front Night Timelapse Video

Earlier tonight I drove up from South Florida to intercept a line of strong to low-end severe thunderstorms racing eastward. The convective complex moved onshore the west coast of Florida in the late afternoon hours just north of Tampa, and continued eastward into central Florida and the Space Coast by early evening.

I setup to shoot a timelapse of the line of storms moving offshore, and once I arrived in Melbourne Beach, I decided turn back west and frame up my shot overlooking the 192 causeway bridge. The bulk of the intense thunderstorm line tracked just to my north, and sent a strong gusty outflow boundary through my location. In the timelapse video you can see the gust front moving in from the northwest and the wind shift on the water surface.

It was a quick up the coast chase for me, and I'll take it for late February storm action.
