A thunderstorm with frequent lightning affected the Wichita, Kansas, area Wednesday night, between 1 and 2 a.m. Central Time. It was caught on the Dropcam weather webcam that I had installed at our AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions office downtown (you can see the live feed here). This was the best strike from that video:
You can watch the entire video below; it starts out with a time-lapse movie of the lightning, then provides the real-time camera feed during the height of the storm.
I visited our Wichita office in 2007. Wichita has been in a drought but has not received as many storms as they typically would this summer. The map below shows that they have seen a one or two-class improvement over the last two months, but they are still considered to be in a Moderate or Severe Drought.
The Atlantic hurricane season of 1996 was a blockbuster season for southeast North Carolina. Could that repeat this season?

The worst flooding this week was in Louisiana, but the unnamed low-pressure system dropped 10 inches of rain in eight states.
Here in Pennsylvania, after experiencing months with almost no rainfall and a complete lack of typical thunderstorm activity, the last 10 days have brought daily rainfall and storms.
What may go down in the record books as "The Great Flood of 2016" is now upon us. Over 30 inches of rain has fallen and thousands have been rescued from the floods.
