Or graupeling? We had a couple of showers of "sprøhagl" as they call it here.

It was definitely snowing at Sandermosen (big, fluffy flakes at the end of the session!) while I was out and at home right after I got back. Later in the day there was notsnow that may very well have been graupel.

oic, you trust the meteorologist but not the paleoclimatologist. ;-)

Same weather in Göteborg Sunday morning - slightly local though so the day at Swedish League turned out OK after all.

Had to look up the word "graupel" as I've never heard that before.

I understand there would be a more correct meteorological term though I´ve always referred to all this as hail - but we definitely got some graupel in Göteborg later in the day on Sunday after a snowy morning.
