Episode Narrative An upper level area of low pressure moved out of the southern Rockies into the plains and combined with a dryline to produce severe thunderstorms on successive days. On May 11th the storms were mainly in the northeastern part of the forecast area. On May 12th they were more widespread starting out west and moving to the east. There were several spottings of possible funnel clouds and even tornadoes near Uvalde and Hondo but a NWS damage survey could not find any tornadic damage. Several pictures and small cell phone videos were inconclusive. Large outflow in front of storms likely caused several small spinup gustnadoes which may explain some of the reports on the leading edge of the storms. Another possible tornado was reported 7 miles south of Giddings along Highway 77. Damage survey did find a damaged barn but no conclusive tornado damage.
Event Narrative A thunderstorm produced wind gusts estimated at 50 knots which knocked down trees on the golf course in Gonzales.
