Weather webcam captures lightning bolt striking nearby

Monday, June 24th, 2013 7:03pm MST

As the sun went down yesterday a thunderstorm moved over the Thornton area.  It provided some brief, heavy rain which was very welcome given our drought stricken landscape.  Accompanying the moisture was a good bit of lightning which lit up the post-sunset sky.

Our west facing webcam captured one bolt as it struck turning night into day for a brief instant.

A thunderstorm on June 23, 2013 delivered rain and a good bit of lightning.  ThorntonWeather.com's west facing camera happened to capture one bolt as it struck.
