supercell thunderstorm

A radar still of Thursday’s early morning shows a supercell thunderstorm in Del Rio, which caused strong winds and large hail. Type of radar: top left – base reflectivity, top right – velocity, bottom left – echo (storm), and bottom right – vertically integrated liquid.

Severe thunderstorms led to Del Rio receiving the third highest rainfall amount accumulated during the month of March, and Eagle Pass receiving widespread damage, local meteorologists said.

Thursday morning, approximately at 2:30 a.m., a thunderstorm transitioned across the Rio Grande from Mexico and over Lake Amistad toward Del Rio, according to STWX Strategic Weather Consulting Certified Consulting Meteorologist Dan Schreiber and Del Rio Weather Alerts Meteorologist Alex Menchaca.
