Right under those big clouds? Looks like the standard afternoon storm brewing out there.

Yeah... didn't expect them this soon I guess.

It's Fremont Peak! Jkjk

I'm always amazed by how much stormer the uintas are than anything else in Utah. Any weather nerds here who can explain it? I'm thinking it has to do with a combination of their height and girth, intensified by a long esst-west fetch

Ha, that photo made me laugh. I've always thought that first it's because they are the pretty high peaks, and second because of the east west orientation they catch the fronts that are moving up from the south. Just a guess though.

Not sure they are stormier but they sure are stormy. It's the upthrust of moist air. I go to the SE quadrant of Utah just for the storms in summer. The LaSals, Abajos, and Henry's generate storms most every day during the monsoon. Sometimes the storms just stay over the peaks but they regularly move to the valleys below. Just spent 4 days in the LaSals and we had lightning and rain on and off day and night. Moab remained hot and sunny.
