Hail Report Information
Station Number: CO-EL-13
Station Name: Kiowa 2.2 WNW
Date: 6/3/2015 5:08 PM
Submitted 6/04/2015 10:04 AM
Taken at registered location: True
Notes: This hail came from the east, very unusual for here, probably from a large white collapsed thunderhead whose eastern and southern edges were directly overhead. It moved very slowly from north to south and then northeast. A turning wall cloud with tornadic activity was moving from west to east under this cloud and passed over my house at about 6:35 and then rain started at 6:43 pm and became heavy at 6:52 pm but didn't last long. Hail came in short intervals, less than a minute each, at 5:08 rice and pea size, 5:15 3/8th's inch and 5:21 pm 1/2 inch. At 5:39 1/4 inch. I assume this was from the large white thunderhead above the wall cloud under it. Rain started at 6:43 pm with heavier rain at 6:52pm. This was a slow storm or it would have been a tornado on the ground for sure because the shear was visible from both altitudes, but thankfully very slow.
