Tuesday night's thunderstorms brought rain, lightning, and hail to parts of North Georgia and Southeast Tennessee.

Many in Rossville shared videos and pictures with us showing pea-sized hail covering the ground.

The hail wasn't limited to Rossville, however, as viewers in Cleveland and East Ridge told us.

Lightning was also a constant throughout the night.

The Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department had a busy evening, responding to several weather-related incidents.

Many viewers have asked why we're getting thunderstorms with it being so cold outside.

David Glenn shared an explanation.

We want to see what you see! If you can SAFELY take a picture or video, submit them to our Viewer Weather Gallery here, and we may share it online & in an upcoming newscast!

Rain is expected to continue falling across the area into the midweek. Depend on us to keep you posted.
