Softball-sized hail pelted parts of Texas on Sunday night, and baseball-sized hailstones were recorded across many other locations along a line of powerful storms that moved through the South on Sunday.
Hail up to 4.25″ in diameter (softball-sized) smashed windshields and more on Sunday in Denton County, Texas, where a possible tornado touched down as well. Here’s a look at some of the largest hailstones seen on Sunday (for reference, 2.75″ = baseball-sized):
And in visual form, check out some of the huge hail spotted across Texas and Oklahoma on Sunday:
The same line is bringing more large hail to the mid-South and the Ohio River Valley on Monday, and that won’t be the end of strong storms across the nation’s heartland this week. An enhanced risk for severe weather is in place on Tuesday and Wednesday – with large hail and tornadoes possible again. As March ends, severe weather season moves into its typical peak months of April, May and June, meaning places like Texas and Oklahoma can expect at least a risk for extreme weather on a semi-regular basis over the next few months.
