Short summary
The main hypothesis of this work is that the discrepancy between the observations and the theoretical models of precipitation formation in warm clouds could be explained by the formation of embryo droplets in the context of a sol–gel transition. By using novel numerical techniques, our calculations show that after the formation of the raindrop embryo, the droplet mass distribution strongly differs from the results obtained by using the traditional approaches.
