Southside—While the south side managed to dodge this most recent round of Spring storms Wednesday evening, surrounding areas found themselves getting battered with hail, high winds and rain.
At one point Wednesday afternoon Bee County even found themselves under a tornado warning as a strong, thin line of thunderstorms passed through the area ahead of a cold front.
The storms came slightly ahead of schedule dropping rain over agricultural areas that could benefit from the seasonal rains. But what they didn’t need is the damaging hail that has already caused trouble in some area fields.
Meanwhile as the rain pounded the agricultural areas, Corpus Christi stayed largely dry and outside of the main event as it drifted off to the east towards Victoria and Houston.
No serious damage has been reported yet from around the region due to the storms.
Behind it brings a breath of cooler air, especially during the morning hours.
