What is hail?

Usually, hailstorms result from unstable weather of thunderstorms, typically between spring to fall. The intense pressure of warm air pushes the rain back to a point where the drops freeze into balls. The stronger the wind’s push, the longer the raindrop is rolling in the clouds, which results in a bigger size of the hailstone. In the summer season, hail happens because the freezing level up in the sky is high, but the hailstones melt on the way to the ground due to hot weather. Though a bigger size stone will not melt; and is likely to cause damage.

Nevertheless, the spring and fall temperature is moderate, allowing the hailstone to melt before it reaches the ground. Along these lines, there are more hailstorms in areas that are on higher altitudes as their land is closer to the horizon like many areas in Canada. Besides that, many other countries and places face hail every year.
