Clearwater Beach Lightning Photography Tips

Lightning is dangerous, but also beautiful. As long as you’re safe, the Florida lightning season can be a beautiful time for Clearwater Beach lightning photography.

Clearwater Beach Lightning Photography Tips

If you are looking to try your hand at capturing some beautiful Clearwater Beach lightning photography shots, here are some tips to help!

The time of year and even the time of day doesn’t really matter. You can capture beautiful lightning photos at any time! However, there is a Clearwater Beach Lightning season. To increase your odds of getting a great lightning photo, you can visit Clearwater Beach when thunderstorms are common.

The Clearwater Beach thunderstorm / lightning season is during the summer when temperatures are hot! It starts in June and lasts until September. Through these months there’s an increase in thunderstorms usually in the afternoon. These storms can come on quickly with a lot of force. They often bring a lot of frequent and strong lightning strikes.

I can’t say this enough. Yes, lightning is beautiful – AND DANGEROUS! Safety comes first! Do not stand outside as the thunderstorm approaches and definitely get off the beach before the storm arrives!

If your goal is to take a lightning photo, think safety first and choose a safe time and location. Before the storm hits, and inside or away from the storm. A great location for Clearwater Beach lightning photography is actually the balcony of a Beachfront Condominium. Mount the camera, cover it from rain. And step indoors. You can set the camera to shoot every few seconds for an extended period of time. Or you can purchase a lightning trigger or pluto trigger to assist with the proper timing of taking the photo when lightning strikes.

If you’re going to be outside, be aware you’re in danger even if you’re away from the storm. But, if you are determined to be outside, be sure to stay far away from the storm and use a telephoto zoom lens for your camera to seem closer than you actually are.

Most summer vacations won’t be traveling with large DSLR cameras and full gear bag, they’ll just have their smartphone. You can still get some great lightning photos on smartphones as well!

Clearwater Beach lightning photography tips for smartphone users

  • Keep safety in mind!
  • Put the phone on a stable surface, tripod or Gorillapod.
  • Disable sounds / notifications (put in airplane mode) to stop calls and texts from shaking your phone while taking photos.
  • Disable Flash.
  • ISO – Set sensitivity low.
  • Shutter Speed – set to a couple of seconds.
  • Focus – Set on a distant area and lock the focus.
  • White balance can be adjusted for the proper coloring. Take a few shots and experiment with these settings to find the one you like.
  • Timer – Set a timer if you can to take photos every few seconds.

Experiment with these settings and find what works best for you. Take a lot of photos and choose your favorites after. After the storms over, review your photos and edit your favorites. You can use apps such as Instagram, VSCO and even Adobe Lightroom right on your phone!

Stay safe and have fun!

Clearwater Beach Weather & Events - August 2019

Clearwater Beach Weather August 2019

The Clearwater Beach weather in August remains hot! Temperatures often reach into the 90°s and storms frequently pop up in the afternoon. These pop-up storms can form very quickly and bring a surprising amount of strength with them; especially strong lightning!

When you see or hear a storm building, don’t delay! Quickly move inside. If you’re on the beach, keep an eye on the Clearwater Beach Lifeguard stands. The lifeguards will warn you of potential dangers such as storms, rough seas, rip currents and even stingrays.

Have fun, enjoy the beach, relax … but respect mother nature!

Clearwater Beach Lightning Season

,
Clearwater Beach Thunderstorm - Clearwater Beach Lightning Season

It’s the middle of summer, many families are enjoying their Clearwater Beach summer vacations. You’re having fun playing on the soft white sand, building sandcastles, cooling off in the calm waves of the Gulf of Mexico and making memories as a family. In the middle of all the fun, you hear a rumble and clouds start to darken the sky. The hot sunny summer day is interrupted with darker skies, rain, thunder, and lightning. It’s time to get off the beach and stay safe! Not only is it summer, but it’s Florida Thunderstorm season. Also known as Clearwater Beach lightning season.

Florida Thunderstorm Season

If you’re visiting Clearwater Beach during the summer, there’s a good chance you’ll see some rain because summer is Florida’s thunderstorm season. The rain kicks off in June with an average of 10 days with rain in the month but increases even more in July and August. July having an average of 15 days with rain and August an average of 14 days with rain. Don’t worry though, it’s mostly popup storms and showers, not full days of rain. You’ll still have plenty of beach time for fun in the sun, and there are some great Clearwater Beach rainy day activities if you’re caught with a full day of rain.

These popup thunderstorms most often occur in the late afternoon and often are out of the way before sunset. Florida thunderstorms are caused by hot, humid air pushing towards an area of unstable atmosphere that’s often found near the Florida coasts on hot summer days. Robert Molleda, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Miami described why Florida sees so many thunderstorms in Kim Millers news story, “Florida’s summer thunderstorms are unique, deadly”.

“Land heats faster than water, creating a temperature difference that can be as much as 10 degrees. The warmer, lighter air over land rises and flows toward the sea creating areas of low pressure along the coast. The atmosphere compensates by sending in the cooler, moist sea breeze. It’s replacing the hot air over land but in the act of replacing it’s forcing it to rise. So you get hot juicy air over the peninsula to rise quickly and the leading edge of the sea breeze will act as a trigger for storms to form.”

These frequently forming thunderstorms are often packed with lightning, making them dangerous! Florida has more lightning strikes each year than any other state within the United States. Most of these lightning strikes coming during summer. While all of Florida has a large number of thunderstorms packing lightning during the Florida Thunderstorm season, the area from Clearwater Beach to Orlando and just south of this stretch towards Fort Myers has the highest amount of thunderstorms each year.

The combination of outdoor activities in Florida and the frequent lightning during Florida’s thunderstorm season result in a dangerous situation. When visiting Clearwater Beach or any part of Florida during the summer always keep an eye on the weather and respect the strength of mother nature. Lightning is dangerous. Florida has more lightning-caused deaths each year than any other state. Be sure to stay safe.

Clearwater Beach Lightning Safety

Always check the weather before you head out on the beach. If there’s a storm already building, it’s best to be safe and just stay indoors. If you’re out on the beach, watch for forming clouds. If you’re not sure, ask a lifeguard or watch the Clearwater Beach lifeguard towers. The lifeguard towers fly different colored flags on them to inform people of the conditions. Clearwater Beach Lifeguard Rachel Lersch discussed the flags and what they mean…

“Green: Low Hazard. Most of the time, on Clearwater Beach, we fly the Green flag. Conditions, for the most part, are good at Clearwater. Calm waters, sunny days! Yellow: Medium Hazard. We will fly the yellow flag when there are possibilities of rip currents and rougher than normal waves. As a caution to the beachgoers to be prepared. Red: High Hazard. We will fly the red flag when there are sever conditions. Rip currents, high surf, strong and rough waves are present. Double Red: Water is closed. When the double red is flying we will whistle everyone to get out and stay out of the water! Purple: Dangerous Marine Life. We will fly the purple flags if we know there are stingrays, jellyfish or other possible dangers present.”

Listening to the lifeguards is always important, especially when there’s a thunderstorm in the area. If there’s a storm coming in. Get off the beach, and especially stay out of the water. Lightning doesn’t have it strike you directly if you’re in the ocean lighting striking the water can cause you severe harm and potential death. Water is a good conductor of electricity, stay out of the ocean when storms are in the area.

The safest place to be during a thunderstorm is inside a nearby building. When a storm blows in, take a break from the beach and head back to your Clearwater Beach condo or hotel. If you’re not staying on the island visit some of the nearby shops, restaurants and wait for the storm to pass over. It usually doesn’t take long. If you need to get around during the storm, do not walk from one place to the other. Call Free Beach Rides in the Clearwater Beach area or use a taxi or rideshare service to help you safely travel around during the storm!

Stay safe during thunderstorms and have a wonderful time in Clearwater Beach!

It’s warm and the sun is out! …but it may not be for long. The Clearwater Beach weather in July is warm and the sky often quickly changes. July has temperatures that often reach into the 90°s and many days may see some rain – usually popup storms that come in the afternoon. Often these popup showers and storms are gone in time for a beautiful sunset. But don’t worry Clearwater Beach if full of fun things to do on rainy days and the storms over the beach are beautiful to watch from the beachfront condos.
