  • Q:

    Why does it hail in the summer?

    A:

    Hail occurs in the summer when strong thunderstorm updrafts carry raindrops high into the atmosphere, where temperatures are below freezing, according to the Atmospheric Sciences Department of Texas A&M University. This causes the water to freeze into pellets of ice, forming hailstones. These pellets may rise and fall multiple times in the storm before falling to the ground, resulting in hailstones of varying sizes.
