7.02- SkyWatch Friday - Clouds over the OYC

One of the recent afternoon thunderstorms looms above Oriental harbor
(Click image to enlarge)

The common pattern of heat-fed afternoon thunderstorms set in this last month, and we can expect to see plenty more dark clouds forming suddenly around us, followed by heavy bursts of rain and cloud to ground lightning.

Today's picture was taken at the Oriental Yacht Club on Raccoon Creek and Oriental Harbor a few days ago.

I look forward to seeing the other Skywatch pictures from around the world on the other SWF sites listed at:
