Impressive monsoon footage.
I regularly fly in small twin engine
aircraft to work in the three month monsoon season here in Arizona. Lots of impressive microbursts, big time lightning, and sandstorms to boot. The disturbances tend to be localized, and we spend time flying around the worse cumulonimbus clouds making getting to and from work more challenging. Microbursts and hail cause lots of damage in Arizona.
Surprisingly, there fierce thunderstorms are not associated with tornadoes which makes me very happy.
When we sailed around the world, we never had weather
like the monsoon here in Arizona. We dodged a few cumulonimbus clouds every now and then, but nothing like we do when flying in monsoon in Arizona.
