On this fine January morning, here at the Kansas Water Science Center in Lawrence, KS, we're experiencing a mix of snow and graupel. Graupel, for those who might be wondering what the heck that is, consists of snowflakes onto which supercooled droplets of water freeze, forming small snow/ice balls that look like tiny hail. It's looking like we'll be getting some more plain snow in the next few days!
