The Northern Hail Project (also on Twitter), is a "spinoff" of the Northern Tornadoes Project. It has announced the recovery of "A Canadian record-breaking hailstone [...] following a storm earlier this week near Markerville, Alta. The record-breaker weighs 292.71 grams, eclipsing the previous title holder – a hailstone weighing 290 grams, collected nearly 50 years ago in Cedoux, Sask. on July 31, 1973. With a diameter of 123 millimetres, the hailstone has a slightly larger span than a standard DVD (120 mm)." See also: "Grapefruit-sized hail" fell Monday in Alberta, and it may break a record.
