Yea the air above us is unstable and prime for thunderstorms allowing the cumulus punch through intro the colder air above. I saw the clouds growing last night and could tell that our atmosphere was quite unstable. This morning was fucking sick though where I lived tons of booming thunder and I even saw a couple cloud to ground strikes. The mountains are also helping in create these showers most coming off of the cascades. I have been hearing thunder all through out the day and I think the same is inshore for tomorrow.
To me weather can be so interesting. Observing big storms is whats good.
