Isolated Severe Storm With Rotation in East-Central Texas...

The above split-screen image was just taken from the Granger, TX radar site. The left half of the image shows the radar in reflectivity (rain, hail, etc.) mode and the right half of the image shows the radar in velocity (wind speed and direction) mode.

Strong rotation is indicated just North/Northeast of Snook (within the white circle on the right half of the image), and is moving toward the East/Northeast at 35 mph.  On the present path, the rotation will pass just North of Wellborn, to the South of College Station.  

Large hail up to golfball size is also indicated to the North of the rotation, near the bright red returns on the reflectivity side of the image.

If you live in the path of this storm, seek immediate shelter!  A tornado could touch down at any time...
