It's super-cooled water droplets that coalesce and cover a snowflake. The ones from this event accompanied the insanely large flakes that dumped over the region. Graupel is soft hail. It's pretty cool when you look at it closely. It's basically a rimed over snowflake. Thank you for the explanation. How large can Soft Hail get? I know the little styrofoam-like graupel pellets, but can soft hail get large like regular hail? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
