Episode Narrative Thunderstorms erupted across the western and eastern counties of the CWA. Across the western counties, a subtle convergence boundary provided an initiation point, but instability was the highest over the eastern counties where scattered afternoon storms developed. Most of the storms this day were pulse-like storms due to weak deep layer wind shear. A few strong to severe storms over the eastern half of the CWA produced hail ranging from nickel to ping pong size.
Event Narrative Quarter sized hail was reported near Preston Road and Park Blvd in Plano.
