July 11, 2013:
storms and shelf cloud on Florida's Space Coast

July 11, 2013: Storms set up in a line moving northeast across Brevard County, Florida, today. An outflow boundary was evident on radar, resulting in an undulating shelf cloud of varying drama. I stayed ahead of the line from Rockledge to Port Canaveral, snapping photos along the way. Share
