So far, our spring has been very quiet with no severe weather, but we know this won’t last for ever. While the weather is quiet, I though I bring up this hail chart for measuring hail stones. First off, never use the term “marbles” to report hail. Why you ask? Have you played a game of marbles lately? If you have, or even if you haven’t, marbles come in different sizes and therefor, are not a accurate way to report exact hail size.
If possible, try to use something that has a standard size, like a golf ball, a tennis ball, or a softball. Above is a chart correlating hail size to an object and a known diameter.
