thunderstorm

 

 

As our climate changes around us, the unusual is becoming more frequent.

Whether it be shorter snow seasons, intense wildfires, or most recently-- storms and lightning across the Chukchi and Beaufort seas.

Alaska climate specialist Rick Thoman,(TOE-min) says thunderstorms need a few different ingredients. 

"One, they need a moisture, and they need a fairly steep decrease in temperature of loft."
