MIKE MOSS SAYS: Billy, Regarding how a mistaken severe weather report might get into the Storm Prediction Center database, simple human observational or communications error can lead to an occasional inaccurate report. In some cases, these are caught and removed and in some cases no one probably ever realizes an error was made, especially if the report was within reasonable bounds given the weather situation at hand.
In this specific case, however, so far as I can tell no change has been made to the SPC storm report listings, and both the golf ball sized (1.75 inch-diameter) hail and wind damage report (trees down) for Moore County from early Saturday morning remain present in the listing for the period 8 am Friday to 8 am Saturday.
