Reports & Pictures Chase Day 8 - Arizona

Recommended Posts

Today was another Insane Monsoon Storm Chase and it comes to something when we know there will be Storms just knowing a good vantage point becomes the hard part, we made it 9 out of 9 Days for the Trip for Storms. The SE Flow is really cranking up the Night-Time Lightning now so another trip towards Tucson was the order of the day, leaving the Hotel in Phoenix at 4pm and driving towards Tucson for Sunset. Storms were off to the SE Of Tucson tonight so no great vantage point over Mount Lemmon, instead a drive to the Desert Floor and some Amazing Lightning Pictures. Here are just 4 of the 50 Lightning Pictures I shot. More crazy Storms Later Today.

It is the Monsoon Season over here from around the 1st July until the 15th September. You get Burst or Break Modes over here, but for a 10 day trip you should see action at least 5 Days of the Trip. We are on 9 out of 9 but still have not even had a Slight Risk or See Text Risk from the SPC! The Monsoon Season has been pretty much 24/7 since about July 5th non stop this year.

Every time I see the shots, I think of Pat imploding with excitement in a lightning frenzy with 6 cameras on the go and him spinning in circles shouting random swear words at each flash. We have to get him out there just for the entertainment value!

Gob smacked by the lightning shots again ohmy.png

I really think you should persuade your missus and the kids to move out there Paul, when the storms have left the Plains by late summer you can hop back to Arizona for several weeks of daily lightning storms. Though you may get sick of the 100F+ heat after a while and be begging for the cool damp thunderless summers back in blighty.
