We had a slow moving storm approaching Cedar Rapids, IA tonight. However, it died before it arrived. Nonetheless, from a near distance, it put on quite a light show for over an hour.
Constant lighning illuminates the storm as it approaches and builds from the north
You can see the swirl and updraft near the bottom of the cloud base, illuminated by a lighnting strike
Just as soon as it seems to intensify…
…it begins to break apart.
