May 5, 2009 Strawn, Texas Damaging Hailstorm

May 5th took us to northwest Texas to play a volatile boundary with high CAPE and moisture, but limited low level shear. A supercell formed along a boundary near Breckenridge, Texas and exploded as it tracked slowly southeast. It spun wildly, tried to produce a tornado a few times, but ended up being a nicely structured supercell with gigantic hail. We destroyed our windshield in the storm near Strawn with softball sized hail being quite common. Click on the video link below for a wild hail video.
