Tornado and hail hits Central Texas

CENTRAL TEXAS - No major damage is reported after a tornado and quarter sized hail hit Central Texas Thursday night.

Several severe storms roll through Central Texas Thursday evening. The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Watch at 4:00 p.m. and it lasted until midnight for many counties in Central Texas.

One storm in Burnet County saw a tornado fall in a rural area. No damage was reported. The same storm also produced pea to quarter sized hail about a mile west of Kempner in Lampasas County. No major damage was reported in that area as well.

Several possible severe storms are expected to come through overnight Thursday. To keep track of the storms Click here for Tornado Predictor Max.


ORIGINAL STORY:

Central Texas looks to be in line for supercell thunderstorms late Thursday afternoon and evening.

The storms will be scattered, so we will not know exactly what cities will be affected until storms start to develop. However, the conditions are very favorable for the development of severe storms anywhere in Central Texas.

Large hail up to the size of baseballs, winds up to 80 mph, and a few tornadoes are possible with the strongest storms.

Best thinking right now is that storms will develop after 4-5 pm and become more numerous through the evening hours.
