Weather Forecast winds of fury

 Mostly sunny today,  hot
With a high of ninety two
Chance of precipitation later  on
Possibility of severe weather in some places

Though the  sun shone brightly and skies were blue
  Scattered thunderstorms were expected too
An easterly wind gently blew
As nomadic clouds floated through

 But later that day dark clouds loomed
A roar of thunder underscored the gloom
The sky lit up with lightening strikes
Water poured down like a broken dike

The howling wind   sounded  like a train
approaching,  speeding towards our terrain
We could hear its destructive fury
Tornado touching down as for cover  we scurried

Thunder pealed and skies were gray
Destruction struck that very day
A mighty wind fiercely blew
A deadly  tornado had just roared through

contest name: weather forecast

    It must be quite an experience to get through one of these storms. You sure gave it some violence!

    but it sure must have cooled things off!! Have you been in a tornado before? It would be spooky. Good way to do this challenge. I enjoyed this.
