In acknowledgement of the many tornado watches and general bad weather, the network stations stayed on local reporting for hours during the late afternoon/early evening. Right here, we got a bit of hard rain, maybe momentary hail, and lots of dramatic skies. Basically, the scary stuff was around us, rather than over us.
Fine with me!
* The weather maps broadcast by the station we watched most of the time displayed purple dots, or sometimes blotches, which we were told was where hail was falling.
PS Normally I like purple!
