DC Timelapse – Passing Storm

Timelapse of the heavy storms that passed over DC this afternoon. The rain and wind/cloud change come very, very suddenly, then taper off while giving way to an unsettled stratocumulus layer.

Fetched every five seconds from the same weather news cam as was used for this earlier webcam timelapse. The frame rate might feel a bit jerky because the server dropped out occasionally, so sometimes there’s a time jump as it wasn’t always five-second intervals.

Update: I’ve replaced this with a new, smoother video which I fetched from the same webcam later in the evening, with more rain, and an added music track, “qwer” by 31d1. Watch for the bolt of lightning around -0:24!
