KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A major storm cloud shrouded the metro area in high winds and hail the size of golf balls on June 1.

At 4:38 p.m., the National Weather Service recorded a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Kansas City, citing winds up to 60 mph and hail an inch thick. Other warnings across Missouri and Kansas showed the same thing with varying sizes of hail.

Even within the Kansas City Metro, hail vastly varied in size and shape. The gallery above shows photos taken of the storm and of the hail sizes, sent in from FOX4 viewers.

While the morning started off sunny, it was anticipated that severe weather could bring hail later in the afternoon.
