Photos | Weakening thunderstorm moves over the Atlantic

As a thunderstorm, which had brought funnel clouds earlier to Central Florida, moves offshore, a woman tests the surf at the beach near Patrick Air Force Base in Brevard County.

As the shelf cloud moves southeast, beachgoers scurry out of the water in anticipation of a severe thunderstorm. The shelf was more organized near Daytona Beach, where some Flickr users snapped some cool shots.

People pack up their coolers as the skies threatened to open up and as the strong wind whipped sand into their eyes. After these people made off, I was the sole person left on the beach, except for a few people on the boardwalk.

The turbulent underside of the thunderstorm had some definite movement, but I didn't see rotation. I was hoping for a waterspout.

The surf was really getting kicked up as it poured offshore.

Everyone on the beach stayed dry. There were only a few sprinkles.
