The Nation

May 21, 1987

Showers and thunderstorms cut across the Plains, producing tornadoes, high winds and hail as large as grapefruits, while a cold front in the Northwest resurrected winter in Montana. A cold air mass heading into the northern Plains collided with warmer air from the South and triggered scattered thunderstorms and heavy rain in much of the Plains from the Dakotas and the Ohio Valley to Texas. Hail the size of grapefruits was reported in Dilley, Tex., the size of baseballs in Dever, Iowa, and the size of golf balls in Moody County, S.D.
