Can hail come before rain?

Share story

On Fridays, MPR News host Cathy Wurzer checks in with retired University of Minnesota climatologist and meteorologist Mark Seeley. 

This week, they discussed meteorological autumn (it’s here!), rainfall totals – and a listener question about whether hail can arrive before rain as a storm approaches. (The short answer: It can.)
