Weather Tidbits: Hail Formation

This Weather Tidbits focuses on the formation of hail. Hail is formed when supercooled droplets freeze within the cumulonimbus. The ice pellets then fall due to gravity, however an updraft lifts it up and re-freezes it. The hail will finally fall once it encounters a downdraft or it becomes too heavy when suspended inside the cloud.
