Nice light show to the north, not to be confused with the fireworks we are live streaming on the page. These are in the form of a more natural light show, thanks to a weakening line of storms that are slowly moving to the northeast. It appears a weak outflow has formed out ahead of the line, which may cause our winds to shift to out of the northwest and briefly pick up a little bit. As far as rain goes, we might see some scattered showers for along the stateline, but most should stay dry tonight.
