It looks like an outtake from a disaster movie, but this is real.

2. We had one roll in pretty fast yesterday. It caught my son out on the water in a boat and
he was stuck there for the duration.

3. Storm scene from Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes
Or just a typical afternoon weather change in Texas.

9. Can anyone say front?
It was 73 in Helsinki with no precipitation. I wonder when and where the video was taken.

10. I just got back from two weeks of storm chasing
This is a bow echo in a squall line, kicking up a nice shelf cloud in front of it. A few more minutes and no one is going to want to be anywhere near that beach. We came across a supercell thunderstorm in Moorcroft, WY that overtook us very quickly and we barely escaped...we got the tennis-ball hail, but Moorcroft got pounded with baseball to softball sized hail that unfortunately did damage.

Enjoy!

11. That's why they need fins on land in Finland.
;-)

But storms sometimes move in very rapidly in the U.S., too -- particularly tornadoes in Tornado Alley.

14. Damn. Looks apocalyptic
I suspect fast-moving storms like this will become the norm as our atmosphere continues heating up...
