Post-frontal storms and cloud patterns

Some elevated post-frontal showers and storms moved across the prairies around New Baden today, with not much to speak of other than some interesting cloud patterns. Today's cold frontal intrusion is bringing a brief break to our very nice string of weather than began a couple days ago, however high 70s and possibly an 80 degree day looks to be in store next week. The storm in the first image was producing lightning according to data, but I didn't see it nor hear any thunder.

Chaser Paul Hadfield up in Decatur shot some similar images earlier.

The red-winged blackbirds, grackles and starlings have been in full force the past couple of weeks, but it appears they have moved on to the north - a good sign that spring is well on the way. A few small groups of stragglers remain.

Nice catches Dan! Heard some thunder to our S this day which was a nice change. For as seemingly quiet as it has been, I wonder if March will in fact go out like a lion?
