Rare Hail Storm in Tucson?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

A person holds hailstones in their hand. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Pima County.

The end of March brought rare weather to Tucson. Heavy rain, hail, and thunderstorms were reported in parts of the city. Backyards on the west side of Tucson were blanketed by hail, covering the landscape in white.

Our team in Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East is trained and certified to restore storm damage quickly and efficiently. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), hailstone sizes are classified by comparing them to a known object. Usually, hailstorms drop a mix of hailstone sizes, and only the really large ones pose any serious risk to people when caught outside in a storm. Here are some hailstone measurements from the NOAA:

  • Pea = 1/4 inch diameter
  • Mothball = 1/2 inch diameter
  • Penny = 3/4 inch diameter
  • Nickel = 7/8 inch
  • Quarter = 1 inch — hail quarter size or larger is considered severe
  • Ping-Pong Ball = 1 1/2 inch
  • Golf Ball = 1 3/4 inches
  • Tennis Ball = 2 1/2 inches
  • Baseball = 2 3/4 inches
  • Tea cup = 3 inches
  • Softball = 4 inches
  • Grapefruit = 4 1/2 inches
