Hail is formed when supercooled water (water that is still liquid even though it is below freezing) in storm clouds freezes onto particles circulating in the cloud. Updrafts in the cloud keep the hailstones aloft and layers of this supercooled water keep accumulating until the hailstone becomes too heavy to be help up by the updraft. The conditions for hailstorms come with cumulonimbus clouds so they often occur during the summer months when these clouds are common.

You know when the sky turns greenish?
That actually means hail or sleet is probable, it doesn't signal a tornado is coming like everyone believes...it is a common misconception.

Hail storms usually occur in the spring/summer; may/june/july.
