Hailstorm in Singapore! 2013 is a good year!

Hailstorms in Singapore!

Hailstorms in Singapore!
Apparently, intense thunderstorms do create hailstones in tropical areas, just that the hailstones tend to melt before reaching ground.
In unusual situation where there is strong downdraft, the hailstones can be brought to reach ground rapidly before melting into rain.

However in this case, I believe the artificial seeding of clouds to induce rain has created very low temperatures in the cloud, providing the opportunity for thunderstorm hail stones.

Love the hailstorm! (but not too big please...)
