Hailstones size data

At the moment it is not possible to represent hail in the IFS because it would require a higher resolution than what is currently possible.

For more details on how precipitation is represented in the IFS, take a look at Chapters 6 and 7 in Part IV Physical processes of the ERA5 IFS (CY41R2) documentation:
