How are hailstones formed?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How are hailstones formed?       
How are hailstones formed? Hail is produced when particles of ice bounce up and down inside a cloud. In cold temperatures, water droplets inside a cloud will freeze into small pellets of ice. As these begin to fall, they may meet warm air rising, which carries them back up into the cloud. There they cool once more, and the process is repeated.

As more and more water freezes onto their surface, the ice pellets gradually grow in size. Eventually they become so heavy that they fall to the ground as hailstones.

Some hailstones are as big as a clenched fist and can do serious damage to buildings and livestock.
