Large Hail Reports From Wednesday Morning

Scattered storms formed around sunrise on Wednesday and continued through the morning before moving into eastern Wisconsin. Most of the storms produced brief rain of 0.25 to 0.50", frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, and pea to dime-sized hail. However, some of the storms produced large hail - up to 2 inches in diameter! Some pictures of the larger hail around the area are below (thanks to our local TV media!), along with a listing of the hail reports received.
