True to the weather forecasters predictions, a Pacific front and upper-level disturbance interacted with high moisture levels as they moved across South-Central Texas and produced showers and thunderstorms last Sunday evening. Isolated to scattered showers and storms were reported across the Hill Country. Some strong to severe storms formed ahead of the line and moved to the east across the Edwards Plateau.
Rain reports varied around Edwards County, but residents south of town received some pretty large hail. Vernon and Gretchen Birck, who live about 25 miles down FM 674, received 2” jagged hail. Gretchen reported it started as small hail and then developed into a limited amount of the large stones. She said they probably only received .40” of rain and the hail luckily didn’t last a long time. A neighbor reported a broken windshield.
