A day after the ice melted from our prolonged freezing rain event in St. Louis, thunderstorms moved through the metro on Monday evening. A St. Louis school gymnasium was reportedly struck and damaged in one of the storms! A few of the cells passed through the Metro East, one briefly putting on a show of cloud-to-ground bolts around Mascoutah and New Baden. This one is viewed from County Line Road in New Baden, looking west:

This isn't the first time I've shot storms here over the winter, in fact it is quite routine in the Midwest.
