This is not to say Connecticut doesn’t get thunderstorms. We do. Just not as persistently and not as violently as what we’ve been having.
Last night a viewer sent me a photo of very unusual hail. We get hail, but I’ve never seen hailstones like these. I assume there were intra-cloud collisions and these large stones formed by accretion. Those bad boys could have hurt someone.
Before you start to blame Global Warming, please note–we haven’t been that warm. Beyond that, the triggering mechanism has been cold air, not warm, at cloud level.
Anyway, I thought you’d want to know that I too find this weather weird.
