"Hail" in context

Hail is a form of frozen precipitation that moves through the atmosphere in the form of balls or irregularly shapes lumps of ice. It typically occurs when an area of strong convective activity is in place within a thunderstorm, producing large amounts of updraft that can lift droplets of water extremely high into the atmosphere. If these droplets manage to freeze, they can become part of a hailstorm. Depending on the atmospheric conditions, hail can be as small as a pea or as large as a grapefruit. Hailstorms are usually localized and can vary in intensity, helping to provide temperature gradients to certain areas.
