Amazing HailstormMay 23rd, 2014 at 2:24 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, News, Weather
A Severe Thunderstorm packing strong winds and hail up to baseball-size (3″ in diameter!) did millions of dollars in damage Friday PM from Pennsylvania into New Jersey and Delaware. The ice needed to be plowed. Skylights were smashed out in the Berkshire Mall near Reading PA. Pictures here. Here’s storm reports from the Storm Prediction Center. Large hail attacks swimming pool. Leaves stripped from trees. The hail cracked a jet windshield. Flooding from the stormsd in Colorado. Add a link with a comment if you can find some other video or pics. Two injured, homes destroyed in Delaware. Dust storm coming into Reno NV. Much needed rain for West Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Are TV meteorologists that “hot”?? Lightning vs. wind turbine – lightning wins! Lightning hits tallest building in Europe.
Model update: The GFS plot gives G.R. just 0.03″ Monday evening/night. The European gives G.R. 0.01″ Monday AM and 0.14″ Monday evening.
