Caption: Hailstone damage. Car windscreen cracked by a falling hailstone. Hail forms in cumulonimbus clouds due to violent convection currents. Particles of rain or snow are drawn vertically up through the cloud, and collide with supercooled water and other particles. These collisions lead to the particles sticking together. When they become too heavy to be supported by the air currents, they fall to earth. Some hailstones can measure more than 10 centimetres across, and can cause severe damage to property and crops. Photographed in Oklahoma, USA.
