Episode Narrative A significant severe weather event developed across the NWS Jackson area during the afternoon and evening of May 2. This occurred during the late afternoon through the night as a few supercell storms tracked east across the northern portions of the area. These storms brought large hail, some up to the size of baseballs along with damaging winds to some areas. Later in the night these clusters of storms evolved into a line which produced scattered wind damage as it pushed east along and just north of interstate 20.
Event Narrative A swath of quarter sized hail fell across all of the northern portion of Attala County as a supercell thunderstorm tracked east.
