A few severe thunderstorms grazed both the extreme northern and southern edges of the NWS Hastings forecast area during the morning hours on Monday, August 10, 2009.
First, between midnight and 100 AM, an isolated storm moved into Valley county Nebraska from the northwest, producing hail to the size of quarters and gusty winds to 50 MPH. Interestingly, after traveling for hours across the Sandhills, this relatively tiny storm quickly faded away after passing southeast of Ord.
Then, mainly between 800 AM and 1100 AM, a new round of strong to severe thunderstorms grazed southern portions of Rooks, Osborne and Mitchell counties in north central Kansas, resulting in hail to the size of a half dollar coin.
