On May 29th the TVN team documented this insane supercell just northwest of Oklahoma City. This storm produced hail up to 6 inches in diameter and a rain-wrapped tornado as it entered the northern suburbs, which we captured in the last part of the video. Luckily, several storms merged as the main supercell neared town which caused it to weaken and produce less hail.

Big hail falling on the evening of May 29, 2012, in northwest Oklahoma City. Some of it looks to be 3-4 inches in diameter. Near the end you can see the reflection of my car's flashers, as the alarm was going off.

  1. Were you in OKC last night? Growing up in Denver, I saw plenty of hailstorms, but only one golfball sized, and larger elsewhere in town. Amazing destruction the big stuff like they had can cause...

  2. No, even though I have family that lives in Oklahoma City, Norman, and near McAlester, I have never chased in Oklahoma. Would like too though some day.
