February - halos You are here: Home Photo gallery Clouds Severe weather Hail fallstreaks

Near the updraft area of a strong or severe storm, one can usually see hail fallstreaks, as distinct, white streaks. These streaks look different (and have higher brightness) than rain fallstreaks, which tend to be darker. Falling hail need not always be visible: especially if the stones are very large, their number density is low and the hailstreaks are not seen well or at all.
