Hail storm blankets South Sound in a slushy coat of white
An intense thunderstorm dropped quite a burst of hail over Purdy and Wauna near Gig Harbor.
The Key Peninsula Fire Chief reported between the hail and heavy rains, it made for a soupy-icy mess about 3-4 inches deep across SR-16 and SR-302 in the area.
Radar estimated as much as 1-1.5 inches of rain fell where the hail came down.
The hail moved into the I-5 corridor where a light coating of hail was reported in Federal Way.
The thunderstorm was slowly moving off to the east and was expected to fizzle later Thursday evening.
