Hail Storm from the Rear April 7th

Spring finally made an appearance this weekend in Central Kansas. Today, Sunday, is the first day of a multi-day event for possibly severe weather. I will not focus on the remaining chance for snow come Tuesday night into Wednesday (come one Winter, it’s time to go home).

A severe thunderstorm did develop today in the area. It was at the bottom of a line of storms and proved to be one of the most intense as several reports came in of golf ball or 1.5″ diameter hail from the storm. The storm dropped this hail at different points over Rush and Barton Counties.

Once it started to move past Great Bend, I drove out West of town and took some pictures of the backside of the storm illuminated by the setting sun.

Below are two of the pictures I took of this storm:
