Large hail fell across portions of TX, LA, MS and AL on 3/17/2016. 3” hail was detected in TX and up to 4” hail in a portion of Mississippi. Strong to severe thunderstorms will develop later today as the low pressure system and cold front dive down towards the Gulf Coast. The strongest storms should begin to form during the afternoon in Central Texas and continue south and eastward through the day. The front will be faster than the real action, but a few individual supercell thunderstorms and some multi-cells, should make a showing. The main threat with these storms will be very large hail, but will have a lower wind and tornado threat.
