Mid March Lightning Storms

Lightning strike through the window.

This past weekend brought some much needed heavy rains across the state. Some area's received 3-5 inches of rain, with some impressive overnight lightning storms for this time of year Saturday night. It was a nice a change after the prolonged dry weather since late October, and nothing beats heavy rain falling with rolling thunder when turing in for the night. 

Sunday continued with scattered heavy rain showers moving onshore and tracking inland over the central and southern peninsula on the stout easterly flow. The rain was not only welcomed by local residents lawns, but also the wildlife around Lake Okeechobee helping to fill low-lying wetlands and canals that have been significantly low since the end of the wet season last fall.

Another chance of rain is forecast for mid-week before drying out again heading into the weekend. Hopefully lightning will remain limited and keep the brushfire threat low.
