[FONT="Verdana"][COLOR="DarkOrange"]This evening there was a cool occurance on radar. A bunch of thunderstorms off to the south (Fort Myers area and the like) spawned an "outflow boundary" line of showers and thunderstorms. When we left the office in St. Pete, you could see cumulu nimbus clouds to the southeast with a dark sky below. The line never made it to Tampa, but did stay around to go off to our east. See the small line on the attached radar northeast of TPA along I-75 to see the last of it.

So I thought outflow boundary thunderstorms were relegated to Texas? I've seen them show up on radar before in my time in Mobile, but never saw such pronounced storms from them.

I went to the bank at lunch and noticed some nice uplift to the north and south, the first time I've noticed that this year. Then on our way home from work (we cut out early before 5), I watched a beauty of a cumulu nimbus metamorphosis into a thunderstorm south of Ruskin. Beautiful stuff! By 6 when I was on my evening walk, which is turning into an evening run, the same storms south of here lost their tops. I'm still waiting impatientlyy >grumbles<
You guys on the immidiate coast west coast of cent FL are going to have it tough to get some of these PM thunderstorms, a persistant SW sea breeze will keep pushing the storms towards the east coast. Sorry to tell you this.

I've toughed it out so long this year, I'm raw. Blah. I do know what you mean though, the seabreeze front based thunderstorms obviously aren't going to form over the Gulf and move over western Hillsborough or Pinellas, so it's more waiting. I'm used to that from the seabreeze front based thunderstorms in Escambia, Baldwin, and Mobile. But still, blah.:icon_bore
There are many thunderheads to the north, east, and even southeast, but nothing thus far here in Tampa. I saw a cloud to ground lightning strike over the eastern horizon, and the anvil just north of that spreads extremely far. It's 90 degrees here and 95 at Vandenburg.
