Video of Thursday morning's weather

Many of you who were getting ready to leave for, or on your way to, work or school Thursday morning will recall the very ominous cloud bank that moved into the metro area in the 7am hour, enveloping the area in clouds worthy of a Weather Channel special. The arrival of this massive outflow (learn more about outflow boundaries and gust fronts in my previous posts) was accompanied by gusty northwest wind (30-40 mph in many cases) and then bands of heavy rain for the next 30 minutes or so.

Well, my good friend and owner of Gemini Media Transfer Service got the video camera out and mounted it in his driveway in Bartlett and let it run, then time-lapsed the 30 minutes of film into a one-minute quick flick. The results are below. Amazing video - and a time-lapse makes it even cooler. Thanks to Ande and Gemini MTS for capturing it and allowing me to share with you.

Make sure you at least watch the last 10 seconds of the video. That's when you see the front come in.
