Episode Narrative Scattered thunderstorms erupted along a stalled frontal boundary over the central South Plains of west Texas during the afternoon hours of the 27th. Many of these storms, initially supercells, produced large hail and damaging winds. The activity gradually evolved into a linear complex of storms that propagated southeastward along with the frontal boundary during the late evening. Wind-blown hail damaged more than 2,000 acres of young cotton crops across the area. The worst agricultural damage was generally along the U.S. Highway 87 corridor south of Lubbock.
Event Narrative Skywarn Storm Spotters reported ping pong ball hail accompanied by thunderstorm wind gusts estimated near 70 mph in Crosbyton. No significant damage was reported.
