Around 3AM CDT we had a series of thunderstorms fire to the SW that immediately began putting down an incredible barrage of lightning. One cell in particular as seen in the first few images would earn severe thunderstorm warning and drift across the S portion of Decatur. Other cells would fire thus continuing the light show through daybreak. It was quiet so I was able to step out for a few minutes.
With several new cells having developed and training in the same general vicinity, sunrise light filtering through the cloud was almost surreal.
Much later as the main complex was pressing into IN, a mammatus display from N Macon county makes for a fitting end.
