May Storms
« on: May 19, 2017, 04:58:50 AM »
Dodged a bullet yesterday evening.A Super Cell developed a couple miles East of the little town I live in yesterday about 5:30pm.30 minutes later there were reports of grapefruit size hail and a rotation signature.Sustained winds of 70mph and gusts to 100,but storm chasers never spotted a funnel cloud on the ground.
I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

National Weather Service just confirmed that the storm produced a tornado at Lake Brownwood.

I agree that it is hard to believe grapefruit size hail.

Wouldn't you hate to be a horse or a cow in that kind of hail?
