Short-Term Severe/Flooding Discussion

Recommended Posts

So sorry to hear about SE Texas... again!!! Can't get a break.

Meanwhile, the Front Range and adjacent Plains are having a sudden hail-fest, after training hailstorms (yes) last night up the I-76 corridor. Today we have a couple of almost-tornadoes near Hudson and Keenesburg and baseball sized hail in the densely populated South Metro area. 2 inch hail at my house, 3 inch hail only 2 miles in both directions. Not home to provide pics, but there are plenty on Twitter if you like broken windshields. Yikes.
