Catalonia (NE of the Iberian Peninsula) is commonly affected by severe and non-severe hail events. Every year, hailstorms cause considerable damage to agriculture areas. Therefore, the Meteorological Service of Catalonia (SMC) started a collaborative project with the Department of Agricultural, Livestock and Fishing (DARP) of the Generalitat de Catalunya in 2016. This project has the goal of providing geo-referenced fields of the maximum daily value of the Vertical Integrated Liquid (VIL) for an area of interest.

Between late spring and early fall, the development of storms is common in Catalonia. Despite the fact that they usually produce heavy showers of short duration, they can also involve severe weather with ice pellets or hail. While the latter usually affect inland regions, and there are numerous publications on these cases; the analysis of events affecting the coast and causing damage to public and private properties is not so well developed.
