As I wound up mowing the grass this evening I noticed a cell just to the east, so I grabbed my cameras and darted off to a couple of observation points. These showers, growing under an upper level cold pool of air, didn’t provide much (if any) lightning but may have dropped some hail. The bottom photo shows what appeared to be a rotating wallcloud with perhaps a thin hail shaft underneath. The top picture was taken a bit later and shows a gust front with what may have been a dissipating wallcloud in the right center. I haven’t reviewed the video yet, so that may provide a better view. Very unexpected local chase, but not one I would turn down!
