A fast moving thunderstorm hit Flagstaff around 6 am. At my house in Switzer Canyon, I saw 1/2 inch hail. When I tried to get out of my car, my finger got zinged by chunk of ice. I stayed in my car until it changed back to sleet. The storm followed me home from the West side Flagstaff Athletic Club. There was sleet and hail all along the way.

Here is a (not great) video:

After Thursday, we should start to experience warmer than normal, dry conditions for most of the rest of the month.
