Icy Weather
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Sleet, hail, and freezing rain - they are all ice. So what's the difference?
 
2     Freezing rain is rain until it falls on a very cold surface with a temperature below 32 F. Rain freezes on such cold surfaces. Streets, cars, and trees become covered in ice! Trees, bushes, and lampposts look as if they were made of crystal. However, that ice can be dangerous. It is heavy and can make tree branches and power lines snap and fall. Cars are not safe on icy roads.
 
3     Sleet is frozen raindrops! Rain that passes through a layer of freezing air turns into sleet. Sleet makes a pitter-patter sound as it bounces off windows and sidewalks. Sleet is slippery.
