Short, sharp hail storm

About an hour ago it got very dark outside and the wind picked up, followed by a very short and sharp hail storm.

This showed up pretty well on the weather station. For that brief period you can see a pretty sharp rise in the wind-speed. A little while later you can see rainfall is recorded as the hail that landed in the rain bucket melted.

I'm not sure I'd call it a "freak" shower, hail isn't that uncommon in the UK and rain/snow showers were forecast for yesterday.

Also seems that they were being enjoyed up in Scotland too.
