<ul><li>Precipitation - There are four types of precipitation. Rain, snow, sleet, & hail that fall from clouds down to earth. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Snow- Forms when the air temperature is so cold that water vapor changes directly into a solid. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Sleet- Forms when raindrops pass through a layer of freezing air near Earth’s surface, forming ice pellets. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Hail - is precipitation in the form of lumps of ice. Hail forms in cumulonimbus clouds of a thunderstorm when water freezes in layers around a small nucleus of ice. </li></ul><ul><li>Hailstones grow larger as they’re tossed up and down by rising and falling air. </li></ul><ul><li>Most hailstones are smaller than 2.5 cm but can grow larger then a softball. </li></ul><ul><li>Out of all precipitation, hail causes the most damage immediately, especially if winds blow during a hail storm. </li></ul>
