AUSTIN (KXAN) — Here at KXAN, we get hundreds of photos sent to us each month by viewers just like you.

We want to showcase some of the best pictures we receive, so we narrowed them down to our 10 favorites for the month. April’s picks inevitably feature lots of storm clouds, including the mammatus seen across Central Texas on April 28.

The winning photo will move on to represent April in the best viewer photos of the year competition once 2023 is said and done. Here are the results:
