Storms Dec 2012


It has been a couple of incredible days for weather events. The charts and models had predicted storms from the 9th Dec for a few days.

On the 10th December, Harvey had a couple of cells develop

On the 11th December, Storms were forming off the coast

Later that night things started to get interesting. After seeing a few flashes of lightning and checking the radar I could see the storms starting to make their way in
