Hail Report Information
Station Number: NJ-SM-13
Station Name: Somerville 0.2 ENE
Date: 3/30/2012 11:30 PM
Submitted 3/31/2012 12:21 AM
Taken at registered location: True
Notes: This was just plain weird. Reported to the NWS-Mt Holly too. For the second March in a row, I'm reporting hail. This year though, there was no thunder, no lightning, not even wind. Originally I thought maybe, "grapuel?" but definitely not graupel. This stuff was legitimate hail. Captured a video of it falling too to prove I wasn't going crazy. My best guess is it's left over from when the rain coming through the area was thunderstorms in PA earlier this evening. Maybe the remaining updrafts were strong enough to continue to produce some hail.
