Maybe grauple? My guess is there is not a funny warm layer.

They had sub 1/4” GR earlier in the remarks. Definitely graupel or small hail.

61/53   Partly cloudy.  Few very light showers today but managed a 70F

Meanwhile, my sister and family in Bend Oregon got hit with a nice hailstorm late yesterday afternoon.  Here's a picture of my brother-in -law with the snowblower.  A bit overdone for something that will melt in an hour or two but it looks like something this weenie would do.

Well MWN was reporting both GR and PL...it’s really not a sleet setup though. Must be legit hail mixed with graupel.

I will admit, if COC is like 2008? with gusty storms and hail every other day, we take

I think there was a diffused additional boundary that kited through here this afternoon... High was 81 at several home stations around town and felt it,....then, it's suddenly early autumn vibe after those gust sprinkles whisked thru  - but that's relative to acclimation. I mean it's still 72 right now... When it's been 45 days of 80/66 or more ...gets that way..

Anyway, the sky and air has the radiational vibe to it... DPs are still in the low 50s and with heavy greenery still evapotran ... interesting battle between dew drops at cooler interior/traditionals...

Nice warm up persists beyond this...

Nice.  Still 64* at ORH, but mid 50's are a fair bet.

The crickets are singing their autumnal tune.

It was a pretty impressive and active day... fast moving cells in the cold pool.

4pm on August 10th, temp of 55F?  That's really cold for the valley this time of year for the diurnally warmest part of the day.  Evaporational cooling FTW.
