Hail

Hail is a form of solid precipitation. It is distinct from ice pellets (American sleet), though the two are often confused. It consists of balls or irregular lumps of ice, each of which is called a hailstone. Ice pellets (American sleet) falls generally in cold weather while hail growth is greatly inhibited during cold surface temperatures.

A recent storm in Texas produced some very large hail. As you can see in the video, it was almost enough to completely shatter windshields.
