October 2017 Viewer's ChoiceThe photo above shows an afternoon cloudburst on a late summer's day as observed near Temecula, California. Hot as well as unusually humid conditions, from an incursion of monsoonal moisture, set the stage for downpours of rain and even and even isolated thunderstorms in this area of southern California, which is typically quite dry this time of year. Photo taken on August 28, 2017.
