Did you know that the weather forecast predicts that there will be sleet today? Like snow, sleet is made from frozen water. However, the way it forms changes its shape. Delicate snowflakes form in clouds that are below freezing temperature and travel all the way from the sky to the earth in air that is below freezing. Sleet starts at snow, but during its journey it moves through an area of warm air, and then through another area of below-freezing air. This causes the snowflake to melt and then re-freeze into a little ball of ice. You can tell the difference between rain, snow, and sleet because sleet usually bounces when it hits the ground.
