Severe Weather - August 25, 2020

Several clusters of thunderstorms moved southeast through the region on the afternoon of Tuesday, August 25, 2020. These storms developed in a very hot and humid air mass, favorable for producing downbursts (straight-line winds). A few storms also produced severe hail.

For an example of how we use radar to detect downbursts, see our tweet here.
