After a breakfast stop and dropping Pete off at DFW airport, we drove back to Vidor (TX) during the afternoon. The majority of the journey was sunny and very warm (in the 80s F), but as we left the I45 at Conroe (TX) and headed eastwards to Cleveland (TX), there was some significant convection taking place, with a N-S line of thunderstorms to our east. We drove through them as we approached Cleveland (TX), and it seems some parts of the town had experienced a powercut, and there was a lot of standing water - some roads were flooded, and many ditches were very full.
On leaving Cleveland (TX) a few flashes of lightning occurred, making it the 10th consecutive day of lightning. Some nice low cloud bases were also evident, with an interesting formation from rain-cooled cumulus to our west. They started to form some nice wave patterns, almost like Kelvin–Helmholtz waves...
