WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Hit by hail – and now, thunder

5:49 PM: Thanks for all the reports! Hail just hit many areas of West Seattle (though it seems to have bypassed us in Upper Fauntleroy – maybe not for long, since we just heard thunder). The photo above is from Rosalie in Admiral Below, some of the reports tweeted at us:

Thunderstorms were in the forecast we published last night – though NOT in the latest update.

6:03 PM: Must be north-to-south-moving hail – NOW it’s here (got a text from Gatewood, too).

ADDED: Two photos from David Hutchinson showing the skies right after the first wave of hail:

    Hail on 35th near Barton! Looks to be pea sized. Mostly subsided now.

    Drove through some wet snow at 26th Ave and 106th St around 6 or 6:30 tonight. Also experienced some hail in Burien.
