|That's not just rain beading up on the backyard patio table|
|It was tiny pellets of ice, already melting as it landed|
|Our weather station showed a temperature reading in the 40sF at our elevation, some 800 or so feet above sea level, and the tiny ice pellets didn't last long|
|It was fun while it lasted! I've lived in Southern California all my life and I don't think I've seen even half a dozen hailstorms.|
The hail flurry lasted less than 15 minutes and the precipitation wasn't enough for our weather station to register. We remain woefully dry, although there's a 40% chance of rain currently showing in the forecast for Thursday. The amount of rain expected from that system is trivial but maybe we'll get another weather surprise.
