The skies over Rockford were in a constant flicker Monday night thanks to a spectacular lightning display.

Low hanging clouds meant residents didn't have to look far to find the light show, which came through the area just before 9:30 p.m.

The above video was recorded on the west side of Rockford while facing northeast.

The National Weather Service did issue a severe thunderstorm warning for Winnebago, Boone and McHenry counties.
