Hail: How It Happens

If you own a home, someone has probably informed you about the dangers of hail. It can really cause a lot of damage to your roof. But, how does it happen in the first place? Well, we’ll go over that here:

Hail and sleet don’t mean the same thing. Unlike sleet, hail has more size. Also, sleet happens during the winter through a different process. Hail tends to occur in cumulonimbus clouds (thunder clouds). The process involves updrafts from warm air that move precipitation into the frozen layer of the atmosphere. This updrafts keep moving the water up, until the frozen layers get so heavy that they drop down to the ground.
