Lightning is an atmospheric electrostatic discharge accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms. Strong winds from a severe thunderstorm appear to be bending out the channel of this lightning bolt. The fast moving wind storm moved through western Oklahoma late at night. The cloud feature along the leading edge is called a gust front or shelf cloud. As it passes the winds shift and become much cooler. This particular storm line had 60 m.p.h. winds.
