How high up does hail form in the sky?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hail typically forms between 2,200 and 2,800 meters (7,000 and 9,000 feet). Any higher than that and the hail will most likely melt before reaching the ground. If the storm is occurring lower than that, it usually means the air is too cold to allow updraft winds that are necessary to hold the hail in the air as it forms.
