Traditionally August in central Florida is 31 days of brilliant hot sun with almost daily thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening. Needless to say it’s muggy.
The other day I took a few mid day photos of the sparkling sky with white clouds. It’s so bright it makes me squint.
All day long the heat and humidity build up in the clouds over the Gulf of Mexico. In the afternoon or evening I hear thunder at a distance. The sound intensifies as the rain moves over land going east. It can be a short shower or a storm of several hours. Two days ago the storm passed quickly. I went outside and the sky was overcast with so many clouds. The bright sun was covered.
Below is the same view before the storm and after.
I hope you enjoyed a brief view of common August weather here in central Florida.
