It looked like snow in my hometown of Winchester, TN yesterday. A soft hail or snow pellets called Graupel covered the ground like snowfall.
The series of photos were taken by Leanne Hyden McCullough, who shared them on Facebook and stated:
“This first picture was taken at 4:40 this afternoon. The others were taken every 4 minutes with the last one at 4:56. The hail came unbelievably fast! Gotta love Tennessee weather!”
Nine inches of snow pellets had fallen within twenty minutes.
