|This is one of those
days when you know that the tornado potential is zero,
but the lure of the lone cell coming out of Northern
St. Charles County in Missouri and was enough to get
me out today, especially since the beginning of the
season was so slow to start. As it came through
St. Charles County, we began hearing reports of Golf ball size hail falling in St.
Paul Missouri. This storm was moving at 60mph
plus, so keeping up with it was not an option with the
Mississippi River in the way. The storm went by
to the north of us and our goal today was just to
cross the cores path and see the large hail it was
laying down. The hail path went right through
the town of Orchard Farm on Highway 94 in St. Charles
County. It fell short of us calling it large
hail, but still was severe status at 1" in size.
