What Makes Hail?

hail that fell from the skyHail proves one of the most damaging natural phenomenon to property within the US; it costs us billions of dollars every year. Unfortunately, we don’t have many avenues of stopping it. If you find the whole process interesting, we’ve gone over what makes hail fall down from the sky.


The Basics:

Two things have to happen for hail to form. Updrafts must carry moisture high up into the atmosphere and the level of freezing atmosphere must get lowered. Cumulonimbus clouds offer the perfect climate for this. Their updrafts carry the moisture to freezing levels, where it turns into ice that then accumulates more moisture/ice. When it gets too heavy for the wind to hold up, it falls to earth as hail.


Now you know the basics of how hail forms. If you have experienced hail, you should have your roof inspected as fast as possible by a qualified professional.
