Random Weather Facts

Precipitation in the form of lumps of ice, mainly associated with thunderstorms is known as hail. The size of hail ranges from a small pea to the size of cherries, but has been observed as large as oranges. Hail in Canada occurs most frequently during the summer when thunderstorm activity is at a peak. Extensive damage in the agricultural industry is caused each year by hailstorms.
