Hail to the Summer

Now, I’m no meteorologist, but that, my friends, is hail.
Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Toronto. It looks like the worst of it is over, but it’s been going quite cyclically since last night. Environment Canada says that the thunderstorms could escalate to torrential downpours with large hail, but should die down a bit by the evening.
Here is the Environment Canada forecast for Toronto. Read up on hail formation on Wikipedia. Here are some hail and other extreme weather safety tips. Order Radiohead’s Hail to the Thief.
