    \begin{tabular}{| l | l | l | l |}
    \hline
    Day & Min Temp & Max Temp & Summary \\ \hline
    Monday & 11C & 22C & A clear day with lots of sunshine. However, the strong breeze will bring down the temperatures. \\ \hline
    Tuesday & 9C & 19C & Cloudy with rain, across many northern regions. Clear spells
    across most of Scotland and Northern Ireland,
    but rain reaching the far northwest. \\ \hline
    Wednesday & 10C & 21C & Rain will still linger for the morning.
    Conditions will improve by early afternoon and continue
    throughout the evening. \\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}

change l (which is a one line cell) to p{3cm} or whatever width you need. –  David Carlisle Dec 17 '13 at 2:47

pick it by hand or use a package such as tabularx, see any latex tutorial. (choosing it by hand is usually better unless you are automating thousands of tables from some database) –  David Carlisle Dec 17 '13 at 2:55
