Because this process is so fast, everything within the supercooled droplet, including small air bubbles, freezes into the layer, which gives it a cloudy look. What we do: NSSL is developing techniques to use dual-polarized radar data in short-term computer forecast models to improve forecasts of hail and large hail. Rain and hail is what creates the "bounded" portion of the bounded weak echo region (BWER) on radar. The stronger the updraft associated with a thunderstorm the larger the hail associated with the storm will be. Michigan looks like winter wonderland in October as snow sweeps in.

AccuWeather School: Eggs help us understand weather maps. When forecasting hail, forecasters look for deep moist convection, in addition to these three basic ingredients: There is no clear distinction between storms that do and do not produce hailstones.
