Storm Survey in From NWS Birmingham

Radar images from the National Weather Service

Last week the Birmingham NWS determined that the storm mentioned in my chase acccout was a severe thunderstorm spawned by a long track supercell. Straight line winds topped out between 60 and 70 miles per hour, with hail that was as large as golf ball to baseball-sized in areas.
