Thunderstorm At PTI

On June 20, 2015, while prepping a weather balloon to release, I enjoyed a beautiful thunderstorm in the distance.

The photo was taken from the Greensboro Upper Air Site, at Piedmont Triad International Airport. It is strictly prohibited to release a weather balloon into a thunderstorm due to safety issues as well as unusable data for synoptic purposes. Fortunately, I still had around 30 minutes before release time so it was not an issue that evening.
