Hail over 1″ is considered enough to cause damage and meets the threshold for a severe thunderstorm.

The severe weather will continue overnight into Friday morning. Areas farther south into Florida will have a better chance of seeing severe weather Friday including hail and isolated tornadoes during the morning and afternoon.
