Nothing much worth talking about today, other than that Charleston got an early-morning wake-up call in the form of rolling thunder from the season's first thunderstorm.
Even though it's not officially spring, the first flashes of lightning in March effectively signal the end of winter.
Following several days of 50 and 60 degree temperatures, lines of weak storms moved through the area during the early morning hours, and again later in the evening around 7:00pm.
No photographable lightning with either line of cells - all intracloud flashes. Although lightning data maps showed several widely scattered ground strikes in the area, it wasn't enough to justify wasting time and gas money going after any of the storms.
