  • Also called an ice bomb. Most hailstones are the size of peas and weigh a fraction of an ounce; sometimes they reach the size of baseballs. The largest hailstone on record in the United States weighed in at 27 ounces. In January 2000, during a 10-day period, 15 basketball-sized ice balls weighing up to 8 pounds pelted southern Spain.
