Looked more ominous on radar but just a garden variety T storm with this first batch 

This is why it's great to switch tilts and also have tools where we can see the storm in a 3D view (like with GR lvl 2) to get an idea of how high up the strongest dbz are located. In these setups or situations where you have extremely heavy rainfall rates, if you're looking at radar and its showing like 45-50+ dbz but the core of those dbz are in the lowest 5,000 feet or so it's predominately going to be super heavy rain. But if you're seeing good cores (50 dbz+) extending close to 10,000 feet and higher...that's when you're getting a damn good storm with wind/hail.
