We just got rocked. Strong thunderstorm hit us. I just woke up and managed to see part of the base cloud
as it was already beginning to pour down. The base cloud had already passed. That's when it got serious for a bit.
Very heavy rain, high winds. The lightning began increasing as the storm passed, and now that the storm has passed,
seems as if it got stronger. Much more thunder can be heard, and it is now severe storm warned.

A tropical disturbance from the Gulf of Mexico is moving from the panhandle of Florida and across the SE United States bringing me a lot of rain tonight and tomorrow. Iím expecting up to an inch of rain the next 24 hours. The humidity will be high and itís going to be off and on heavy rain showers tonight and tomorrow.

The thick cloud cover will hold down temperatures. A forecasted high of 76F is chilly for July standards where I live. Definitely going to be a soggy 24 hours.

Didnít get quite as much rain as expected here. We got two short and heavy downpours and a lot of drizzle and mist. The humidity makes it feel gross outside! I could do without the humidity too but tisí the season here in the South. Iím glad to work indoors  :)

We had last Saturday afternoon, what I think was supercell storm. Sky got very dark and it was windy, at first there were a few lightning strikes in the distance. Then it stopped lightning, and the wind got very strong (probably tropical storm force winds) and the air cooled down quickly. The wind was so strong, the water had white caps and you could smell and feel the water in the air. It was similar, to being at the sea and you can feel and smell the salt water even away from the ocean.

There was some rain after, but the wind part of the storm lasted probably 30 minutes before it ever started to rain.

@Cole D, Are you somewhere in Florida near the beach? Those beach thunderstorms have always amazed me. Even here in South Carolina, Iíve witnessed some fierce storms at the beach near Charleston. Itís a lot like what you describe with skies becoming dark and strong winds. The thunder always seems louder with coastal storms. After their fury, they are over as quickly as they began, leaving behind steamy and humid conditions. I love a good afternoon thunderstorm! I remember walking on the beach at night and seeing heat lighting out over the ocean. The heat lighting is reflections of lightning strikes on clouds. Nature is so beautiful!

Today it was 100 degrees where I live. First 100 degree day of the year. Iím used to the SC heat, but I definitely prefer cooler climates. We had a little bit of thunder, but the storms passed us by today.

Yes, but not near beach. We had another storm today where wind picked up strong with black clouds and rained soon after. No buildup like this other storm though.

I don't know about others, but I enjoy the rain sound of a good rainstorm. But my favorite part of a thunderstorm is that buildup with dark gray or blue sky, and the wind picks up and you can feel the moisture in the air. For me it's even better, if that's a longer buildup before the rain starts. There's sort of an anticipation before the rain, for me anyway. Lightning striking close, I don't like as much, as dangerous, but I do like the sudden rumbling of thunder to alert you that a storm is rolling in.

Also two nights ago, I looked out the window around 11:30 and could see the lightning reflections in the sky, like you describe, from distant storms.

@Cole D, do you know if there was rotation with the other storm you talked about? If no rotation, it was definitely not a Supercell.
Sounds more like a Severe Thunderstorm than anything.
Speaking of that, we've got thunderstorms heading our way here in Ohio. None of which look severe, but they are still in the process
of developing. That, and we've got high temps, and high humidity today. I work in a couple hours, and I planned on taking my motorcycle,
but I can't due to these storms heading our direction.
I WISH I could view a beach thunderstorm... especially a Supercell one, with the classic UFO base cloud. The most severe a thunderstorm
can possibly become, all in distant view. That'd be awesome.

Weíre about to get hammered by a heavy thunderstorm tonight at midnight. I could feel it coming with the thick humidity. I got a cool lightning show as I drove home from work tonight. Flickering like my preheat fluorescents  8)

Hereís a powerful cell moving east from northern GA toward my area in SC. The main threat with this one is heavy rain and flash flooding. Glad Iím home for the night!

No threat of thunderstorms today, from what I've seen in forecast. None tonight either, but some threat to the north of us tomorrow.
Still, so far this year, the weather hasn't been as bad as I thought it'd be. At all... and we've pretty much passed the primary time
period for severe weather. It's not over yet though until winter is back.
So far here, I haven't encountered anything regarding the threat of tornadoes, or any tornadic storms. No storm has been potent enough
for anything like that, at least not here.
