Pretty strong storm moving toward the Copperfield area. Harris county rain gauge at Bear Creek and FM 529 has recorded almost 1'' of rain in 30 min. Could also have some pea sized hail.

Definite shortwave impulse approaching from W/SW area as storm increasing in coverage and strength. Radar indicated hail poss to .5" diam in cell to N/NE of Katy http://wx.apxsolutionsinc.com/wxradarbaseref.php. Gusty winds here in League City to 25 mph.

It also appears a previously mentioned coastal low may be trying to spin up to the NE of BRO and S of CRP area as indicated by radar returns...hard to say for sure.
