Hail

The National Weather Service has a severe thunderstorm watch in effect for New York City and areas north and east through 8 p.m. Monday night.
The hail came down just after 2 p.m. on Saturday in New York City.
Expect windy rain, thunder, garbage gales, the whole bit.
Today brings the possibility of gusty, hail-ridden thunderstorms, while the weekend portends an excellent beach day.
Hail is not unusual during the summer.
Plus hot air, gusting winds, Twitter photos!
Wind gusts are expected to hit the 30-40 MPH range, and "pea-sized" hail may come with it.
Later this evening a third character, a low-level jet with some really strong winds, will make its presence known.
But the apps could still be rolling soon. "Passengers can wait 10 days to enjoy the latest technology," pointed out TLC head David S. Yassky.
"TORNADOES...HAIL TO 0.5 INCH IN DIAMETER...THUNDERSTORM WIND GUSTS TO 70 MPH...AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING ARE POSSIBLE IN THESE AREAS."
If a few companies get their way you could soon be legitimately hailing cabs with a smartphone—who cares if that could create a "two-tiered taxi system" for the smartphone-haves and the smartphone-have nots.
