from Austin American-Statesman
By the time you read this, large hail and damaging wind gusts might have struck Central Texas. If so, it would not be out of character; May is the month that tends to bring the most severe weather. May has brought the most tornadoes, hail and severe thunderstorms, according to data provided by the National Weather Service. Since 1955, May has produced 1,092 reports of severe hail and 501 instances of high winds — numbers significantly higher than in any other month — in the weather service’s Austin-San Antonio region, which includes Central Texas and parts of South Texas.
