Storm Over Manistee

This storm is 17 miles south of us over Manistee at 11:00 Monday morning. It has a similar profile on the weather radar as the storm we were in last night.

It shows how isolated thunderstorms can be. Even last night the worst of the wind and rain was over in about 15 minutes. The storm in this picture will be mature for only an hour or so.

See "Thunderstorm Lifecycle" under the "Weather" shortcut on the right side of this blog for a description on how storms are born, mature, and die.
