Getting small hail. Weird, the higher returns on radar yielded very little rain but small hail for a minute or so. Gusts ahead of the precip. 30-40 mph. Barely 0.10” rain. 

Never got a wall of rain like radar indicated, seemed to be more wind than anything then some steady rain came in. Only got 0.08" out of this round.

Yeah, those higher radar returns were clearly catching the hail. Interesting seeing the lack of rain as oranges and reds rolled over. Winds out front were decent. Lawn furniture and cushions launched, as usual.

WOW--line just passed through out here and that was wind unlike anything I have seen since I moved here.  The weather station picked up a max of 35.3 MPH, which shatters the previous record.  It is only about eight feet off the ground and isn't totally exposed so I'm sure the actual wind was much higher than that.  Yard is a mess.

The wind had an incredible roar. Very nice show here on Towamencin. Primarily a wind and drama cloud event. Vultures were loving it. We had a nice burst of rain. We had a covid scare in the house and I'm trying to avoid running in and out, so I had to take a picture from the window. 😒
