Daily Historical Weather for April 2
In 2013, a supercell tracked across Southeast Texas from near Rock Island to Wharton to Needville to Hitchcock. This storm produced quarter to golf ball sized hail for most of its track. The storm slowed and intensified as it approached Galveston County and the storm started to produce tennis ball sized hail over Santa Fe. The storm reached peak intensity near Hitchcock and this location was pummeled with 4.5 inch diameter hail.
