So here’s the storm happening right now over Boston:
Also watching lightning strikes on Lightning Finder, as well as out my window, before I go outside for a better view.
Check out FlightAware‘s view of KBOS (Logan airport) flight activity map:
You can see flights avoiding the storm as it approaches the airport, which is just above the “BO” in KBOS.
It’s just a summer thunderstorm. Nothing exceptional. It’s just fun to watch it online in all these places as well as from a chair on my front porch.
… And now, a few minutes later, the sun is out and we have rainbows in Cambridge. Meanwhile, flights are taking off from Logan, while inbound flights circle in the sky to the east:
By the way, also at FlightAware, there’s this notice: “Boston Logan Intl (KBOS) is currently experiencing inbound flights delayed at their origin an average of 1 hour 33 minutes due to thunderstorms.” So if you’re coming here for the weekend, good luck.
