My weather radio went off around 6:41 am for the Severe Thunderstorm Warning in Lawrence County. I usually sleep in, but I figured I better get up! Chris had things under control at the station, so I took the Wood Ford StormTRACKER out to investigate. I knew there was not a threat for tornadoes, but I went searching for some hail... and found it.
The above image gives you a "behind the scenes" look inside the truck. I had not "punched" into the storm yet, but as I drove a few miles to the North of Paragould, I knew I was in position to see some hail... if it was there...
The rain came down hard and the lightning was tremendous! After a few moments of heavy rain, I started to hear the hail on the truck. It was mainly dime-sized, with some penny-sized mixed in... Visibility was LOW!
Once the storm passed, some very nice cloud formations formed within the updrafts and downdrafts of the storm. A new storm or two was forming on the heels of the strong storms that had already passed... The thunder continued through the morning!
It's always cool to take some pictures of the Wood Ford StormTRACKER after the storms pass!
Have a good day!
