Episode Narrative A frontal boundary draped across West Central Texas, combined with an upper level storm system approaching from the west and a surface dryline triggered thunderstorms across the western Concho Valley and Big Country. As one supercell tracked east into Nolan county, storm spotters reported brief tornadoes. This storm continued east dropping hail the size of golf balls. Baseball size hail was reproted just southeast of Abilene near the town of Potosi. This storm continued to produce baseball size hail as it continued east into Callahan county. Another supercell developed just west of San Angelo dropping quarter size hail in Knickerbocker and at San Angelo Mathis Field. As this storm moved east, hail increased to golf ball size across Concho County. Wind gusts to 69 mph were recorded at the Brady Airport before equipment lost power. There was widespread tree and power line damage in Brady. A National Weather Service Storm Survey revealed an EF0 tornado caused damage to storage buildings, trees, and vegetation on the southeast side of Brady Lake.
