Hail comes crashing down in Alberta

Lyndsay Morrison, staff writer

June 9, 2010 — Hail, looking more like snow, blanketed parts of Alberta yesterday. Will there be more storms today?

It was a stormy night in parts of the Alberta on Tuesday, and it could be another one on Wednesday.

Thunderstorms rumbled across the foothills in the evening hours, bringing ominous clouds and large amounts of hail. Hinton, near Jasper Provincial Park, was one of the hardest hit communities. One of our viewers captured the footage above of a street in the town that was covered in hail.

Brian Dillon is a meteorologist here at The Weather Network. He says more thunderstorms are possible Wednesday night.

“We're looking at the potential for another round of active weather in the foothills,” he says. “We're also looking at some heavy amounts of rain in other parts of the province. Anyone living between Edmonton and Calgary could see anywhere from 30 to 45mm of rain or more.”
