Thunderstorm outflow

Outflow

These pictures were taken looking north as outflow out ahead of a thunderstorm approached Goose Lake Weather on June 27th. Many times this outflow can produce impressive cloud formations called roll clouds or shelf clouds. Although this outflow only produced a poorly defined roll cloud, it was impressive to view just the same. Outflows generally result in gusty winds and sometimes dramatic temperature drops just prior to the arrival of the thunderstorm.

Rain at last

Friday, June 29th, 2007

After a very long dry spell we finally received some decent rain. We had 3.59 inches in the last week bringing the monthly total to 4.60! Prior to that, it had been 60 days since we saw 1/2 inch or more. It was a very welcome rain indeed. Cooler temps at the moment with a promise of more heat by July 4th.

Welcome!
