Severe weather events in Turkey leads to the very serious damage in local and meso scales. In this study, the situations in which hail events occurred in different regions and at different times were analyzed. In the scope of the study, first synoptic analyzes were made and available situations and remote sensing data also were evaluated. Following these analyzes, for Antalya and Samsun which is located two different geographical regions, model analysis was performed by using HailCast Module of WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting Model).
