Sighting for May 19, 2015

Jim Egbert

Roscoe Rd Orange Beach and Graham CreekNature Preserve Foleyl
Baldwin County, AL

Mid day, sunny in the 80’s light SE wind. Coastal fronts are now happening daily. By late morning the on shore breeze and the moisture in it are being forced up by the warmer air over the land. Along that boundary where the two air masses meet a line of cumulus clouds forms parallel to the beach.These clouds are then pulled inland by convection of heated adjacent land and begin to grow into the afternoon thunderstorms.These will stop all the sighting activity as everything looks for cover.
