‘Graupel’ Covers Lake City Area

Item: April snow coats parts of Inland NW/Mike Prager, SR

More Info: The chance of snow or rain showers continues today after much of the Inland Northwest saw a series of strong snow and rain showers on Wednesday night. Snow pellets known as “graupel” covered much of the region this morning after cold overnight temperatures kept the precipitation from melting. Snow was falling at dawn this morning in Coeur d’Alene with no more than an inch of accumulated snow pellets on the ground.

Question: Were you thinking (and saying) happy thoughts when you awoke this April morn to find snow on the ground?
