Update on Severe, Rotating Storm Near College Station, TX

The above image was just taken from the Granger, TX area radar (click the image to enlarge). The left half of the image shows the radar in reflectivity mode (indicating rain, hail, etc.).  The right half of the image is a special indicator of hail potential, called VIL (vertically integrated liquid).

Large hail around golfball size is likely within the white and grey shaded areas on the right half of the image.  This core of large hail will pass over the southern portion of College Station, and points South of there.

The track is indicated by the white line, with the current Tornado Warning shown in purple.  Rotation is still indicated, which will pass just North of Wellborn and to the South of College Station.

Damage, possibly from a tornado, was reported in Snook (near the small tornado icon).

Seek shelter if you're in the path of this storm!
