Classic Tampa Bay Slam

Posted on Monday, July 5, 2010 at 5:00 PM MST

ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- A classic 5:00 Tampa Bay Slam hit the Bay Area this afternoon. Over Hillsborough County, the east coast sea breeze collided with the west coast sea breeze, triggering explosive thunderstorms that tracked west across the bay towards Pinellas County. I was a bit late going out for the chase, so it was pouring by the time I got to the Pinellas Point boat ramp, so I didn't get too many pictures. It was a fantastic lightning display, and had the feel of monsoon. It was the best storm we've had since mid-June.
