Large Hail, Gusty Winds, and Tornadoes Rake the South on Friday!
Severe storms rumbled across portions of the Mid-South on Friday, producing high winds, large hail, and a few tornadoes as well (see radar animation and storm reports above). Here is some vivid video evidence of the large hail, received via Twitter.

In the end, the SPC (Storm Prediction Center) counted 145 total severe weather reports, including 92 hail, 43 wind, and 10 tornado. The largest hail reports came from the suburbs on the north side of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area (see above), up to three inches in diameter. Fortunately the pattern calms down in the next few days with no significant chances for severe storms in the foreseeable future.
