Thunderclouds Ho!

Most people imagine epic pow days when they think of Loon, but summertime also brings its share of exciting weather to the mountain. The past few days have seen strong thunderstorms pop up throughout New England, and yesterday we were lucky enough to capture video of one such storm forming over the White Mountains.

Taken from the top of the Scenic Gondola Skyride on Loon Peak, this video shows a thunderstorm developing to the northeast of Mount Washington. The video, which compresses 10 minutes of footage into 15 seconds, shows just how quickly a towering cumulonimbus cloud can form on a warm summer day.
