Storms rolled through the Brazos Valley Wednesday, bringing strong winds and up to golf-ball-sized hail.

BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — People living in the Brazos Valley were hit with two rounds of severe weather Wednesday that brought hail, damaging winds, and even a brief tornado warning.

The storms moved through Central Texas first, hitting the Waco and Temple area before pushing through the Brazos Valley. People reported seeing up to golf ball-sized hail in North Bryan. Here at the KAGS station near downtown Bryan, the hail was about ping-pong ball-sized.

This resulted in reports of downed trees and power lines. Some people living in Brazos County and surrounding counties reported power outages and damage to their property; including the collapsing of Dixie Chicken’s roof off of Northgate.

GAINESVILLE, Tex. — If you’re a meteorologist and it’s May, you know the atmosphere always has a few tricks up its sleeve. Storms over Kansas produced incredible displays on Thursday, but Friday was shaping up to be iffier. Nonetheless, I drove the 460 miles to my chase target in Wichita Falls, Tex., bought myself an ice cream and waited beneath blue skies.

Before long, a towering cumulus cloud bloomed into a massive rotating supercell, a telltale hook appearing on the radar where it began to rotate. Air spiraled into its corkscrews updraft as rain and hail fell to the north. Even on the edge of the storm, I was getting big hail. I knew this would be a nasty storm.
