Hi Bobbi I would say that a threat for harm from a thunderstorm would be that thunder would be near but a strike from overhead would result in thunder heard simultaneously or slightly after the stroke
Hi Bobbi Light and lightning is faster than sound. So, it would be likely that a cloud to ground lightning strike directly above you could not be heard prior to the lightning hitting the ground.
Hi Richard Typically the lowest temperature for a 24 hour day occurs around 4 to 5 am (an hour before sunrise); however, if a weather system , high or low pressure, cold /warm fronts, are in the area
Hi Terry Small vortices, tornadoes and especially dust devils, are less likely to obey the coriolis effect and, on some small percentage, will rotate clockwise. The general population does not notice
