Had some half golf ball sized hail here in Bainbridge earlier.

That stormed formed literally over my head. The up drafts were amazing to watch. It barely rained here, mostly wind and ugly black clouds. It definitely looked like bad news for anyone down range.

see any funnels? York got hail and was in a warning.

Weather outside here looks weird.
Got really warm over the past several hours, sun is shining brightly through the haze but there are some dark clouds off in the distance.
Storms ought to be passing through in about an hour or less.
