4/22/2015 Grand Rapids, MI Graupel Sleet

A spurt of winter-like weather returned to residents of West Michigan Wednesday morning. Moderate rounds of graupel/ice pellets mixed in with occasional light snow, began to fall by sunrise in Kent County, Michigan. What accumulated only briefly quickly melted away, a sign that last week\'s prevalent warm temperature streak can still quickly change at a moments notice. General visuals include graupel/ice pellets falling on a black deck surface, accumulation in grass, atop of vehicles, and light snow juxtaposed with blooming Magnolia trees.
