Lightning Storm Structure Opens Florida Wet Season

Late last night I had the pleasure of capturing a beautiful lightning storm over the interior counties of south-central Florida. The storm developed earlier in the evening around sunset over the lower Kissimmee River basin near eastern Highlands County.

The storms slowly propagated south-southeastward down the east coast seabreeze boundary which came to a halt west of Okeechobee County and ran southward through Glades and  Western Palm Beach Counties. The storm maintained itself for about 3 to 4 hours putting on a spectacular lightening display and some impressive storm structure for Florida standards.

The Florida what season typically begins during mid-to-late May, but for me personally, I always say that the beginning of the season happens when I experience my first late night sea breeze storm of the year, and last night was my first good one of 2013. So, I say the season is officially open. Enjoy. :-)
