WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Storm sweeps through

Thanks to Murphy McCullough for the photo from Upper Alki! Amazing clouds this past hour or so as another storm wave sweeps through. The forecast calls for continuing unsettled weather – possibly some thunderstorms in the hours too.

ADDED TUESDAY EVENING: We also got a different angle from Dan Ciske:

    Great photo! Looks like something from the Midwest.  And we just got our first thunder about 10 minutes ago and there it goes again as I type this!!

    Took this picture about an hour ago in our neighborhood, at the time it wasn’t raining but now we’re getting drenched!

      I think those are sharknado clouds.

    As someone originally from a plains state,  if I saw clouds with tails like that rolling in, I’d be heading for the basement.

    The last time I saw a cloud with those “fingers” reaching down, it was in St. Louis. That storm sported a towering triple-decker “roll cloud;” I’ve ever seen anything like it since. It literally came rolling over itself from the clear blue sky. Spawned multiple tornados, including one that tossed a large branch onto our Explorer as my dad was returning from the mall to my uncle’s place. It had a literal wall of rain and 60 mph wind – you could see it sweeping across the landscape as it approached my uncle’s place – I was standing outside, jaw agape, when it blasted into me. Lightning like you wouldn’t believe. Craziest batshit storm I’ve ever seen. This one’s intense rain, and the fingers in those pictures, reminded me a lot of it. Surprised we didn’t get more lightning!

    Used to see those back home in N.E. Kansas. My wife, who’s from here had never seen one before was quite fascinated so we grabbed a couple of cold ones, walked to the end of the rock road at the farm and watched the show. She was a little disappointed to learn the storms were actually in Nebraska.

Sorry, comment time is over.
