LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — It’s cold and breezy in Mid-Michigan today and weather systems are aligning to make for an interesting couple of days.

Graupel is a unique type of frozen precipitation. Pronounced ‘graw-pull’, it’s the name given to the small pellets that form when supercooled water droplets (below 32°F) freeze onto the surface of snowflakes as they fall from the cloud to the ground.
