for April 28 

April 28, 1921 
A severe hailstorm in Anson County, NC, produced hail the size of baseballs. Gardens, grain fields and trees were destroyed. Pine trees in the storm's path had to be cut for lumber because of the hail damage. (The Weather Channel) 

April 28, 1928 
A coastal storm produced tremendous late season snows in the Central Appalachians, including 35 inches at Bayard WV, 31 inches at Somerset PA, and 30 inches at Grantsville MD. High winds accompanying the heavy wet snow uprooted trees and unroofed a number of homes. The storm caused great damage to fruit trees and wild life. (David Ludlum) (The Weather Channel) 

April 28, 1987 
Twenty cities in the western and central U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date. Highs of 95 degrees at Houston TX, 95 degrees at Lake Charles LA, and 94 degrees at Port Arthur TX, were April records. (The National Weather Summary) 

April 28, 1988 
Miami, FL, hit 92 degrees, marking a record eight days of 90 degree heat in the month of April. Squalls produced snow in the Washington D.C. area. Belvoir VA reported a temperature reading of 57 degrees at the time the snow began. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) 

April 28, 1989 
Strong northerly winds and heavy snow ushered cold air into the north central U.S. Snowfall totals in Montana ranged up to 20 inches at Miles City. Thunderstorms produced severe weather from eastern Texas to the Southern Appalachians and the southern Ohio Valley. Hail four and a half inches in diameter was reported at Keller TX and White Settlement TX. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary) 

April 28, 1990 
Thunderstorms produced severe weather in the southeastern U.S. during the day. Severe thunderstorms spawned four tornadoes, including one which injured four persons at Inman SC. There were also more than one hundred reports of large hail and damaging winds, with better than half of those reports in Georgia. Strong thunderstorm winds injured four people at Sadler's Creek SC. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) Twenty-nine cities in the northeastern U.S. reported record high temperatures for the date as readings soared into the 80's and lower 90's. Highs of 88 degrees at Binghamton NY, 94 degrees at Buffalo NY, 89 degrees at Erie PA, 90 degrees at Newark NJ, 93 degrees at Rochester NY and 92 degrees at Syracuse NY, were records for the month of April. (The National Weather Summary)

    • MD 1099 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE FOR TX HILL COUNTRY...PARTS OF SOUTHWEST TX Mesoscale Discussion 1099 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0726 PM CDT Sun Jun 16 2019 Areas affected...TX Hill Country...parts of southwest TX Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible Valid 170026Z - 170130Z Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent SUMMARY...A new severe thunderstorm watch may be needed. Large hail and severe gusts are the primary severe risks. DISCUSSION...Visible satellite imagery shows a couple of widely spaced thunderstorms over the TX Hill Country extending westward into parts of southwest TX in between San Angelo and Midland. Surface temperatures south of an effective boundary are in the lower 90s degrees F and surface dewpoints are near 70. The 00z Del Rio raob showed 3800 J/kg MLCAPE with 35kt effective shear. Farther west, the 00z Midland raob showed a very steep surface-500mb lapse rate (8.5-9.0 degrees C/km). Given the CAPE/shear combination within the corridor south of the boundary and additional swelling cumulus development, it seems plausible a few more storms may develop. Any sustained updrafts will be capable of large hail/severe gusts. ..Smith/Edwards.. 06/17/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product... ATTN...WFO...FWD...EWX...SJT...MAF...

    • MD 1098 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY FOR EASTERN KENTUCKY...WEST VIRGINIA...FAR SOUTHERN OHIO...AND FAR WESTERN VIRGINIA Mesoscale Discussion 1098 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0601 PM CDT Sun Jun 16 2019 Areas affected...Eastern Kentucky...West Virginia...far Southern Ohio...and far Western Virginia Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 162301Z - 170000Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...Storms across eastern portions of Kentucky are beginning to coalesce, which may pose a damaging wind threat within and downstream of WW 388. DISCUSSION...Regional radar trends show a band of multicellular storms over eastern Kentucky now beginning to merge, with Doppler velocities beginning to increase a bit. These storms are occurring on the eastern periphery of an instability axis characterized by MLCAPE of 2000-2500 J/kg and the southern periphery of marginally enhanced mid-level flow (30-40 kt). The current expectation is for storms to continue organizing and growing upscale, with the primary threat being damaging wind gusts. Some uncertainty remains as to how long/far downstream this threat will persist, given a progressive decline in instability/shear with eastward/southward extent across West Virginia and far western portions of Virginia. However, the latest mesoanalysis and convection-allowing guidance suggests low-level moisture advection will continue to help with destabilization over this region through the remainder of the evening. Given the potential for this convective evolution to unfold, a new severe thunderstorm watch will likely be needed. ..Karstens/Edwards.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1097 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 388... FOR LOWER/MIDDLE OHIO VALLEY Mesoscale Discussion 1097 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0342 PM CDT Sun Jun 16 2019 Areas affected...Lower/Middle Ohio Valley Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 388... Valid 162042Z - 162215Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 388 continues. SUMMARY...Strong to severe thunderstorm coverage is increasing across WW #388, with a threat of damaging wind and isolated large hail continuing into the evening. DISCUSSION...Latest regional radar mosaic and visible satellite imagery continue to show an increase in areal coverage of strong to severe thunderstorms across WW #388. The environment over the area continues to be characterized by moderate to strong instability (e.g., 2000-3000 J/kg of MLCAPE per SPC mesoanalysis) and effective bulk shear values of 25-40 knots (strongest north of the Ohio River). Thus far, the most numerous activity has occurred across portions of southern Indiana where a large cluster of storms has produced near-severe hail over the last hour or so. While storms have remained more scattered farther west over southern Illinois and southeast Missouri -- with a recent report of 1 inch hail in Carter County, Missouri -- visible satellite imagery suggests areal coverage of strong/severe thunderstorms will continue to increase over this area over the next few hours. Primary severe threat continues to be damaging winds and isolated near-severe hail, with a low...but non-zero tornado threat continuing into the evening. ..Elliott.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...

    • MD 1096 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 387... FOR NORTH CENTRAL TEXAS Mesoscale Discussion 1096 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0335 PM CDT Sun Jun 16 2019 Areas affected...North central Texas Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 387... Valid 162035Z - 162230Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 387 continues. SUMMARY...An evolving convective system is expected to continue to grow and intensify through early evening. The greatest potential for strong and potentially damaging wind gusts appears likely to shift from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, toward the Corsicana and Waco areas through 4-6 PM CDT. DISCUSSION...Upscale convective growth continues across and south of the Interstate 20 corridor, from near Abilene into the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Increasing organization has become readily evident with activity overspreading the Fort Worth area, where a mesoscale convective vortex appears to be evolving, accompanied by strong rear inflow, and a peak gust to 57 kt recorded at Fort Worth/Alliance at 2016Z. Further intensification of the lower/mid tropospheric cyclonic circulation appears likely as it interacts with a remnant outflow boundary extending south of the Metroplex, near/east of the Interstate 35 corridor, toward College Station. Inflow of seasonably high boundary layer moisture, with large CAPE, will maintain intense convective development, which appears likely to turn southeastward and southward toward the Corsicana and Waco vicinities through 21-23Z. In addition to continuing potential for strong downbursts, the strengthening temperature differential across cold pool into the pre-convective boundary layer (with temperatures now in the low to mid 90s around Waco), probably will contribute to increasing potential for damaging winds along the strengthening gust front. ..Kerr.. 06/16/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
