Slow beginning to the season

It's been slow which seems to be a more common post I make every April and May.  There have been no confirmed tornados this year in the state of Kansas as of May 10, 2020 but that may change in the coming week.  We've had nice weather, but the jetstream hasn't been in it's normal form, where it generally dives over Kansas, allowing gulf moisture in.  This year it's blocked it from Kansas and we've been rather cold.  Most storm this year have been in Texas, Louisiana, and the rest of Dixie Alley.  A surprise shift may change that for next week as local severe storms have been forecast Wednesday into Saturday.

On Thursday this last week, a group of storms moved through the area.  These were below severe limits but produces a nice shelf cloud and lots of instant cloud to ground lightning.  

I also created a video of slow-motion video lightning strikes.
