I took these photos of cloud to ground lightning as a line of storms approached Huntsville between 5 and 6 a.m. this morning. North Alabama was actually under Tornado Watch #2, but the line of storms produced no severe weather whatsoever in the Tennessee Valley. There were a few reports of pea-sized hail.
