10:50am Weather Update - Elevated Hail

Watching a storm over northern Graves County, Kentucky that has some hail in it. However, the hail is caught up in the storm around 7,000 feet.

Here is a cross section image of the storm. Note the pink area in the storm. That is where the hail would be located. The image was taken at 10:43am.

The reason the hail shows up pink is that hail has more surface area to reflect the radar beam.
