Hail the size of marbles falls in East York

Catches weather networks by surprise after September heat wave

Days after the city’s late-September heat wave, hail fell in Toronto on Sept. 29.

Hail the size of small marbles fell in East York and south Scarborough around 2:30 p.m. for an estimated five to ten minutes.

Although the city had high temperatures in the beginning of that week, resulting in a record breaking heat wave, several weather networks including Environment Canada warned Torontonians of a risk for thunderstorms.

The hail came as a surprise to many.

Chilly weather is expected to continue through the weekend before temperatures return to high numbers in early October.
