Lightning Surprises the Bay Area (Photos)

Categories: Weather


It wasn't a giant truck rumbling down the street after all.

It may be hard to believe, since there were minimal raindrops, but thunderstorms stretched across Bay Area skies last night, and SF Weekly reader Lauren Chai snapped this great shot of a bolt zig-zagging through the electrified atmosphere over the Glen Park neighborhood.

The Bay Area will feel like a Midwest summer for at least another day, with humidity continuing to create hair problems for many people (and long-haired dogs). The red flag warnings remain in effect through today as more dry lightening strikes remain a possibility.
