Summer thunderstorms

The Southeast USA expects the afternoon rain in the summer

IMG_3474

Summer brings intense  heat, high humidity and afternoon thunderstorms to the Southeastern USA.  Late afternoon and early evening storms can be expected.  It all starts with the rumbling thunder, dark clouds and maybe a lightning flash,  the downpour follows. Don’t expect things to cool off.  Daily temperatures during July and August stay in the 90’s and evenings drop into the 70’s.

A few visitor tips:

Keep an eye on the sky for the dark clouds that roll in

Roll up your car windows if you expect to be away after 4pm

Pack an umbrella

Plan your nap for 4-5PM

Listen for the rumble if you’re at the beach because it’s a mad dash when the rain starts

Tourists to New York City have a tall task ahead of them when picking and choosing their sightseeing destinations. The Empire State building is always at the top of the list but a great tip for getting a spectacular view of this magnificent 102 story building is to look at it from the Top of the Rock.
Rockefeller Center is located on 5th Avenue between 48th and 51st streets. Visitors will have a 360-degree view of the city from the 67th, 69th, and 70th floor observations decks.

If you enjoy one you will likely enjoy the other. Since walking is the preferred choice of transportation for visitors , it’s a quick 20-minutes between the two.

Here’s a closer look:

I give both the buildings a  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rooftop view

Guaranteed fun…Happy travels …I love NY…so much to do…good pizza..new shoes
