Good Thursday one and all, the weather across Eastern Kentucky was much calmer today than yesterday. The stormy pattern is taking a break, our next chance of rain isn't until Saturday, and even then it's just a slight chance. Our next good chance of storms comes on Sunday and it looks like the first few days of next week.
Last night's storms did provide a ton of great pictures, and since I was only able to show a few last night, I can show all I want on the blog. So let's check them out!

These were some awesome pictures, and not even all the ones we received. As always if you safely can do so, send your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
A quick word about wall clouds. While pictures are awesome, video is even better! Snap that phone over to video mode, record about 30 seconds and then send that to us as well. It helps to properly identify clouds types and see if there is rotation in the storms.
Thanks again for the all the pics, until next time take care!
