A great photo from last night's storm from our friend Chris Burrows, (rotomonkey). Chris said that during the 15 second exposure there was actually only one occurance of lightning meaning this lightning discharge was severely forked. Just one of many from the evening's storm.
Given the humidity and unstable air, we could see more intense storms tonight as well, and throughout the week. Gothamist must remind you to be safe in a thunderstorm as lightning can be deadly. For now we will continue to let this week's weather art by Jennifer Eilertson distract us from the humidity and stick.
