In this work according to radar-tracking supervision the cell structure and evolution dynamics of the hailstorms processes observable in territory of Azerbaijan are investigated. It is established, that depending on a thermodynamic condition of an atmosphere and vertical structure of a wind in it meet single-cell storms, multi-cell storms and super cell storms processes. Multi-cell storms processes are in turn subdivided on indigested and ordered. As against other regions of the world in territory of Azerbaijan two kinds of ordered multi-cell storms processes are revealed, first of which have conditionally named normal, and the second – anomalous. Repeatability of various types of hailstorms processes changes year by year. From the considered 260 cases 8% are attributed to single-cell storms, 40%-to multi-cell storms, 19 % – to super cell storms and 9% – to hybrid multicellular-supercellular storms processes.
