June 27, 2013. Last Tuesday, residents of the western areas of Singapore reported that with the rain showered on them. "In my window something was pounding and I opened the front door to see what was going on," — says the teacher Lucas Ho. — "I never thought I'd see hail in Singapore."
According to the National Agency for Environmental Protection, hail — a rare event in the city-state. The last time something like that seen here in 2009, reports Channel News Asia.
Hail is formed in supercooled clouds by the freezing of individual droplets of moisture. Large hailstones can appear only in the presence of clouds, strong updraft.
