I just had the same here. Seemed more like hail to me the way it was bouncing off the cars, graupel is usually soft and doesn’t make as much noise. However VIL data on the radar doesn’t show anything so not sure about hail. 

Hail is only in thunderstorms with high cloud tops, these weren't that it was graupel.

what area is this and elevation?

That's Allendale, just west of Grand Rapids. The elevation is pretty close to lake level, at around 650 feet. It was snowing pretty hard about an hour ago and the pavement was completely covered. Looks like it's melting now that rates have dropped.

Out where I lived in West Michigan is getting some nice snowfall right now.

I have heard that annual snowfall has tripled in that area the last few years after averaging only 1” of snow for the few years before that.  Locals aren’t quite sure what caused the huge swing….
