    Fantastic write up Nick, I certainly didn't know the part about the energy process, from the liquid to the gas. Will certainly help newcomers!

     

    Worth adding too, the heavier the precipitation, the quicker the process, lowering the temperature even further. Hail is a supreme example of evaporative cooling at its best!

    I think with hail it's more to do with the fact it falls at a much faster velocity than rain/snow, so it doesn't have chance to melt fully before it reaches the ground.

     

    And thanks :)

    I remember 18th November 2007 sticking out in particular here, although the snow never really stuck it was notable as upper's never fell below -2 throughout.
