Studies with two 3-cm radars and dense surface hail networks showed that the areal extent of hail during a given precipitation period can be estimated in a study area from the areal extent of the highest half-order of reflectivity for the day. However, only 20 percent of the high reflectivities (>1 0 5 mm6m-8), surface or aloft, were associated with point hailfalls In-storm hail volumes could not be detected by magnitude of reflectivity, reflectivity gradients, or echo volumes. However, hail echoes showed large volume increases above the —5C level in the 5 minutes prior to hail A hail-producing echo could be identified by three or more of five criteria relative to a given day: 1) echoes were in the taller half of the first echoes; 2) had above average first echo depths, top to base, 3) had above average reflectivities at first echo; 4) grew more than 3000 feet, and 5) existed more than 20 minutes. Conditions leading to hailstorm development are rooted often in the initial phases of a cloud (echo) development. Complete 3-dimensional radar reflectivity scanning must be accomplished over a study area in 2 minutes or less to identify hailstorms and to measure surface hail areas with 3-cm radar."
