Kendall Co. sees half-dollar-sized hail in early morning storms

KENS 5's Paul Mireles gives an update on a wet Tuesday outlook and area severe weather from overnight.

Although the widespread heavy rainfall event predicted by the National Weather Service did not materialize overnight, portions of South-Central Texas saw some severe weather, including large hail in certain areas.
 
NWS reported around 4 a.m. that the cold front associated with the event stalled overnight north of Temple, lessening the likelihood that storms would cover the region.
 
Kerr and Kendall Counties were struck with severe weather early Tuesday morning, however, even seeing hail up to the size of a half dollar. Southwestern Kendall County was under a Flash Flood Warning until 7:15 a.m.
 

 
#kens5eyewitness Charlotte Dittbrenner submitted this hail photo from nine miles southwest of Boerne. She said she found larger ones in her yard.
 

 
If the storms push south, the threat will be more straight line winds of 60 mph. The area could also see 1 to 2 inches of rain with isolated amounts up to 5 to 6 inches. Those chances, however, were heavily diminished at 6 a.m. as NWS canceled a Flash Flood Watch in the area.
