Day 1 – Knowing Precipitation Types

As a member of a Weather-Ready Nation, our goal is to inform you with tips and information about weather that can keep you safe!

Today, we dive into different precipitation types we can see during the winter season. This consists of rain, snow, sleet, and even freezing rain!

All precipitation begins as snow. However, depending on if we have a layer of warm air at or above the surface dictates if we see snow, sleet, or freezing rain!

Be ready for all types of precipitation this winter and remember your winter driving techniques!
