It graupelled for awhile an hour ago. Graupel looks like small chi-chi balls or the stuffing of a beanbag chair. It occurs when snow flakes fall through supercooled cloud droplets. When these droplets his the crystal, they freeze, covering the original form. (The Weather Book by Jack Williams). Now it is snowing again, but downgraded from initial snowstorm warnings. Cooling quickly. Lost a degree in the last 30 minutes.
