Fourth of July Fireworks Caught on Area Webcams

For those who like below normal summer temperatures and plenty of sunshine, the weather this Fourth of July weekend was perfect.  Especially perfect for grilling out and lots of fireworks.  The National Weather Service uses area webcams to help monitor weather conditions across southern Indiana and central Kentucky.  They give an added perspective from the typical radar and satellite images that reveal data from above. These images are useful for many meteorological reasons, including determining precipitation type and intensity, estimating visibilities, and watching how clouds develop over time.  Several of these cameras had a good view of fireworks shows over the area.  Here are a few of the images (click on the image for a larger view).

Currently, the weather service monitors around 200 webcams across southern Indiana and central Kentucky, but we are always on the lookout for more, especially in areas that are not well covered by automated weather instruments.  If you own a webcam that you would be willing to let us know about, please send an e-mail to the webmaster
