Holy Hail!

A few storms developed this afternoon with some cold air moving into the upper levels of the atmosphere. Some storms had lightning and high cloud tops that produced hail! Shelton Police reported hail 1.75" in diameter at 2:11 PM in Shelton! I haven't seen hail that big in any pics I have seen. But here are some other pics my lovely facebook friends sent in!

Although there could be another isolated storm tonight with hail, I think most locations will just see a few leftover showers/drizzle. Periods of rain will continue right through Wednesday (maybe early Thursday).
