The first one is the rain character and the second one is pronounced [bao] in Chinese (similar to 박) + also has the rain character in it. So this could be a good way to memorize it, I think.

These are actually the Chinese characters that the Korean word comes from. The character 雹 is pronounced "bok" in Cantonese, which is closer to the Korean pronunciation.
