ROUND TWO OF SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE THIS EVENING

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings hit the Bond and surrounding areas this morning.  Quarter to golf ball size hail, and in some places bigger, has been reported throughout northern Bond County.  One listener sent in pictures of quarter size hail in the Woburn area.  Also reports of heavy hail were called in from Reno, Donnellson, Sorento and just south of the county line road on Red Ball.  A second and possibly more severe line of storms is expected to form to the west of St. Louis and move off to the east ahead of a cold front this afternoon and evening.  The National Weather Service has placed the WGEL listening area in a moderate threat for severe weather, this includes more hail, damaging winds, possible tornados and locally heavy rainfall.  Stay tuned to WGEL Radio for further weather forecasts and any watches or warnings issued by the National Weather Service.
