zwerob Posted November 20, 2014 Report Share Posted November 20, 2014 I know for freezing rain and sleet, you have to have a warm air layer overtaking freezing temperatures above the ground. The flakes above melt to rain drops and freeze into ice pellets or freezing rain depending on the layer of warm air. W/O freezing temps above ground level to freeze rain into ice pellets/sleet, how does precipitation come down as sleet? Can someone go into detail about what fronts are involved (warm/occluded/stationary/cold), wind direction (Sn unlikely with SE winds in this region according to Bolaris) and how this affect the type of precipitation? Links to visuals would be cool. Thanks, Rob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
