I've been watching the weather today, and we went from a 20% chance of rain to 30%, then to 40%, and now it's pouring, with "garbanzo bean sized" hail.
And it hurts when it hits!
It just started to rain, then small hail started coming down. By the time I'd cleared space in the garage,(maybe two minutes), and ran in the house to get the keys for SLW's car, it was raging, and I got pelted with a whole bunch of big hail while running (well, what *I* call "running") from the garage to her car.
That stuff hurts!
We got .15" of rain in a few minutes, and the yard was covered with hailstones. The hail melted within minutes as it was 85* here all day, and yesterday, and the ground was pretty warm.
I think we'll get some more rain, but the heavy stuff has passed.
Here's what my weather station recorded. Not the rapid rise in barometer and humidity, accompanied by a large drop in temperature.
And the radar from 2025 local time.
Still some out there, and the radar return indicates we should be having sprinkles, but nothing yet.
