Hailstorm in Malta on Tuesday, 15 January, 2013 at 16:33 (04:33 PM) UTC.
Civil Protection urges prudence from motorists and pedestrians, as unexpected hailstorm has hit parts of the Maltese islands early this afternoon. A hailstorm surprised motorists and pedestrians early this afternoon, catching them off their guard in various parts of the island. In localities like Mosta, Iklin and Naxxar, the hail was so intense, open spaces looked like they were covered in snow. The Civil Protection Department issued a warning to motorists to be prudent on the roads, and to avoid low lying areas, known to flood. Dark clouds, strong winds, a downpour and hail, wiped away the sunshine which dominated the skies this morning, paving the way for a lowering of temperatures and more storms in the coming days.

Despite the relative stasis of the Maltese climate, historical records present some variations. In the capital city of Valletta, meteorological officials of the time recorded on February 19, 1895, a temperature of 1.2 °C (34.2 °F), which remains a record for the city.[16] Regarding the island as a whole, a temperature of −1.7 °C (28.9 °F) was recorded on 1 February 1962, at Ta' Qali airfield, in the centre of the island, which was pelted first by frozen precipitation (hail), and later in the day covered by snowfall that lasted through the night.[16] Snow, which is virtually unheard of, is officially on the record books of the past 200 years as having occurred in January 1858 (widespread snowfall), March 1877 (light snow without accumulation), February 1895 (snow squalls without accumulation), January 1905 (flurries without accumulation), March 1949 (snow recorded in the interior of the island), and January 31, 1962.[16] On the last of these dates, January 1962, some parts of the interior of the island were covered by snow for the majority of the day, and the following night, February 1, marks the only event in the history of Malta in which frost was recorded.[16] In August 1999, the meteorological department at Luqa International Airport measured a record high temperature for the nation of 43.8 °C (110.8 °F). Frost had been recorded before in February 1829.

It wasn't cold though, so it all melted within about 10 minutes.

Very localized to a few kilometers in the center of Malta - Gozo was fine, as was the South of the main island.

To put that in context, it's like Central Park getting a hailstorm, but Wall Street and the Bronx having sunshine.

Weird stuff....
