At least 5 lightning strikes seen - 12.7.2022 at 19.05 - 12.7.2022 at 22.20 Iitti, Urajärvi Observation number 107700

Visibility III / V

Esa Palmi, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The traditional Finnish fate of a storm enthusiast. You are in the perfect spot, the thunder coming your way looks big and powerful but freezes completely about 50km away from you. After that, a smaller thunderstorm cell appears right next to it, and the rain and a couple of nearby lightning drives you away from the shooting location.

On Tuesday, all the best thunderstorm events stayed at the eastern border, but chatting with fellow enthusiasts and seeing a few flashes of lightning put a positive tone on this trip.

Kuten Esa kirjoitti, laihasta ukkossaaliista huolimatta mukava ilta järvenrannalla, kiitokset harrastajakollegat.

Ukkospilvi tuli komeana rajan yli luoteeseen mutta kääntyi pian 90 astetta vasemmalle etelään ja meni Kotkaan.Ajattelin hetken lähteä perään mutta pilvi oli jo liian kaukana.Täällä Mäntyharjulla ei näkynyt yhtään salamaa joten perinteet ovat voimissaan..:(
