Local Weather History For April 20th...
1989: A high-based thunderstorm moved southeast across Lubbock County late this afternoon accompanied by intense
microbursts, frequent lightning and hail as large as golf balls. As this storm entered the northwest city limits of
Lubbock, an off-duty National Weather Service meteorologist estimated winds of 60 mph associated with a microburst. Along
with the wind, 0.5 inch diameter hail fell for 20 minutes; however, very little rain accompanied this storm. This hail
then grew to golf balls near Avenue U and 50th Street. This storm continued into Lynn County where additional microbursts
overturned two loaded cotton trailers in the town of ODonnell. By far the most significant storm this day developed in
Briscoe County before moving into northwest Motley County and producing particularly intense microburst winds
