wth is Graupel?!?
From Wikipedia:

Quote:Graupel (also called snow pellets) refers to precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water condense on a snowflake, forming a 2–5 mm ball of rime; the snowflake acts as a nucleus of condensation in this process. The term is derived from German Graupel meaning the same. Graupel does not include other frozen precipitation such as snow, hail, ice pellets or diamond dust.

You can read the rest of the explanation here.

Graupel is often seen here in Central Alabama along with sleet. I hate them both.
