Photography: Sunset Storm
On Wednesday evening, I was in Arlington watching my son's swim team compete in one of our area's big swim relay carnivals. Growing clouds to the north threatened the event with the possibility of lightning, but the meet finished on time and after congratulating the team, I made the short trip to the District for photography. Soon after I arrived, I watched a storm grow and move in from the northwest. For several moments, the light from sunset provided some nice color to the storm. The storm continued to grow and a rain shaft expanded quickly as it moved east of Washington.
Keep reading for more photos of the storm, and another shot from the Fourth of July. See the full forecast for the weather through early next weekend and NatCast and UnitedCast for the outlook for tonight's games.
The only spoiler with this photo shoot was that low clouds moved in at nightfall, blocking the view of the storm for lightning photography as it moved east of Washington.
