This work analyzed thermodynamic and synoptic environmental characteristics associated with the occurrence of hail generated by a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) that reached Sobradinho in Rio Grande do Sul (RS) from December 09 to 10, 2008 as well as morphological and radiative behavior of this MCS. These analyses allowed highlight the main atmospheric conditions which contributed for the occurrence of this event. The results showed that the atmospheric conditions observed in the region (heat and moisture transport at low levels and intense updrafts) were extremely favorable to formation and development of the MCS that began in December 09, 2008, which favored the hail occurrence on the same day in Sobradinho and precipitation in RS in December 09 to 10, 2008.
