I had never heard of this. Looked it up. Found this on YouTube. Pretty amazing if anything close to this

Sounds more like something I learned about in birthing class than meteorology though.

About 40 min ago, leaving Boston on 93 N hit deluge that even the fastest wipers couldn't keep up, with hail mixed into the rain.  Mostly rain but there were enough smacks to get your attention thru the Fellsway and North area.  Leftmost passing lane was mostly flooded for the length up until Stoneham.

It was just like that ..but it was bright enough to be visible on the sun side of a back lit CB ... I ran for the phone but ... alas the flaring had ceased by the time I snapped this image off - The yellow arrow is the approx region where it was flaring off the top of the lower turret near the interface where it gets lost punching into the top region.  It followed theoretical behavior to a tee...it was glowing in there, then there was bolt of what looked like it might have been cloud-to-air and that seemed to trigger the flare to morph ... it did that a couple of times, too before the whole thing stopped.  This guy was putting out distant booms as it was moving away toward the east, and it was warned on the N side of Boston... Wow- today was hugely worth the analysis in my book jesus christ.

The left mover by Pawtucket shot up to 65 dBZ to nearly 25 kft. Big core above the freezing level, good potential for a downburst there.

Yeah it looked impressive from afar.

This thing just exploded over Mansfield while walking the dog... I've never seen it go from full sun to a shooting tower so fast.

The lightning is ridiculous.  Very close strikes.  File this under "that escalated quickly" category from sunshine to very dark sky and torrential rain.

But that exploded to a Warned cell in about 3 scans of the radar... from nothing to huge towers as it ran into the mountain.

Good benefit of being immediately downwind of VT's highest peak is the thunderstorms that blow up over it drift down over town.  Decent terrain component to today's storms that have been seemingly skipping over the Champlain Valley.

Pouring in west bethel right now. Managed to get off mountain before threat of lift shut down.

 

Yeah, Some embedded strong cells where you are, That whole line is pushing SE, I’ll see if it holds for here once it gets out of the foothills.
