Severe Weather Hits Mid-Missouri
The day began with sunny skies and tempatures in the eighties, but as Missouri weather can, it changed rapidly. Heavy rain pelted mid-Missouri with up to an inch in several places. Four counties were under tornado warnings throughout the afternoon and early evening.
Columbia saw hail, strong winds and heavy downpours. The parameters for severe weather are at least penny sized hail. Saturday's storm dropped golf ball size hail in some areas. It covered the roadways up to an inch in thickness.
