Glacier National Park Storm Cell Photographs

Well, as luck, or fate would have it, from out of nowhere it seamed, this storm developed over the southern end of Glacier National Park. These are a few photographs of the storm cell that developed over Summit and Little Dog Mountains and progressed north along the front range of Glacier National Park, Montana.

The PhotographsThe first photos is of the storm cell developing and letting go of it’s moisture. The following images are the cell developing, beginning to collapse and then moving though the area dropping heavy rain and creating high winds. I’d say the winds locally were 50 miles per hour as the storm moved though. I eventually had to quit shooting because the wind and rain became unbearable. What’s interesting about these photographs of the Glacier National Park storm cell, is how uncommon and rare it is to see this kind of cell develop, almost out of know where, over the mountains, and this late in the season. We see them more often on the prairie.
