    I've been seeing static crashes for the last several days. The squall line is from TX up to IL, IN, and OH. I understand static crashes up to a few hundred miles but not upwards of 1,000 miles away.

    Whew! At first, I thought you were going to say that you got a 'Little bit o' lightning' into your radio.

    Here is a nice tool to let you know when there are lightning storms approaching your area.  I keep this web page open in one of my Chrome browser tabs with the audible alerts on when bad weather is expected.   You can zoom in to just your area or zoom out to see the big picture.   You will hear a click for each strike in your area.
