The St. Louis area experienced some intense storms Wednesday, as storms rolled through in both the afternoon and evening. Naturally, St. Louis took to Instagram and Twitter to deploy the area's favorite hashtag, #stlwx — and with good reason. From the weirdest clouds we've ever seen to an ominous night sky, the weather was a sight to see — and we've compiled some of the best photos of right here.

Of course, we all had to play the "my hail is bigger than your hail" game. We have to say, this hail in St. Charles was pretty impressive. - PHOTO COURTESY OF INSTAGRAM / STACIANN213

Our weather may be unpredictable, but we have to say, it knows how to put on one heck of a show.
