3 inch Hail

Posted: 15 May 2020 03:29 AM

A powerful storm just south of Des Moines dumped large hail up to three inches in diameter Thursday afternoon. The featured map presents a preview of an upcoming hail size estimate product produced by the IEM based on NOAA MRMS MESH along with available NWS Local Storm Reports centered over southern Iowa. The MESH product uses RADAR data and algorithms to produce estimates of maximum hail size. The three inch report aligns well with the estimated maximum in the product. The data presentation shown is not yet available on the website for generation, stay tuned!

Good = 15
Bad = 1
