Rain, hail then sunshine

No injuries or heavy damage was reported Tuesday when rain and hail pounded Odessa for about 10 minutes, leaving a few flooded intersections, frayed nerves and power outages in its wake.
Sheets of hail the size of quarters hammered the city by around 6:30 p.m. followed by rainfall that was brought on by an upper trough from the west, the National Weather Service reported.
A total of 386 customers were affected by the thunderstorm with 229 of them having lost power by the University Boulevard area where there are downed power lines, ONCOR spokesman Gus Ortega said.
Roughly, 157 customers were without power in scattered parts of Odessa. Work crews were at the scene trying to restore electricity in areas impacted by the storm, Ortega said.
Some of the hail was reported to have been as big as ping-pong balls in south Odessa, NWS meteorologists said. By 7:08 p.m. the sun was shining.
An overnight low of 50 was expected with possible showers. A high of 65 was the forecast for Wednesday, the NWS reported.
