Hail is water that gets caught in strong upward moving winds. The water will freeze, then start to fall, with more water attaching to the hailstone. This can get sent back up into the freezing air several times. Each time the air pulls the hailstone up, a layer of ice is formed. Once the hail is too heavy or the strong upward winds weaken, the hail will fall to the ground. Most hail is small, some hailstones can be as big as softballs.
