Winter Precipitation Types: Snow Sleet And Freezing Rain
WINTER PRECIPITATION: ALL ABOUT TEMPERATURE AT DIFFERENT LEVELS
SNOW: Below freezing in the clouds and on the way down.
*It can snow when the surface air is warmer, but colder snowflakes don’t melt yet.
(INVERSION: A warmer layer of air in the middle of the middle of the atmosphere)
SLEET: A thin inversion melts snow or starts out as rain, then it refreezes on the way down to the ground. This ‘pings’ when it hits and can hurt. The layer of cold air near the ground is thick.
FREEZING RAIN: A thicker inversion melts snowflakes or starts as rain. The thin layer of freezing air near the ground i snot enough to refreeze the precipitation. It will fall as rain, but freeze on contact with the surface.
RAIN: Warm enough above freezing all the way down to the ground.
