I was surprised to see some yellow on the radar when I got up this morning at 4:30. A large cell was marching ENE across the middle of the state at a quick pace. Some minor hail was expected and brief heavy rain.
The storm sped up as it approached our area, and finally hit at 5:30 a.m. We had moderate rain and light wind at the beginning, but then the wind picked up to a recorded gust of 24 mph, and we had hail between 1/4" and 1/2" slamming into the house for about a minute. (Luckily the girls didn't wake up!). I put on my spotter hat and called it in, as well as our rainfall amount. In a period of 30 minutes, we received 1.15" of rain.
I will take a picture of the hail pad and post it soon.
Active weather week ahead!
