We had showers in the forecast for this afternoon, but the hail was a bit of a surprise. There's plenty of cold air in place at the surface and aloft to support the production of hail. This combined with a disturbance helped generate a round of rain with embedded areas of hail.
It's amazing how cold it has gotten after 80 plus degrees for many of us. The cold weather will stick around for most of the week with highs in the 40s and 50s. A warm up is waiting for us next weekend!
We received a ton of pics and video of the hail. THANKS! Here are a few below. You can always send us your weather pictures and video to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's video from Mike Still in Lonsdale...
