Graupel, snow squall, thundersnow? Here’s what those weather-related terms mean

Has it been a weird week for weather? OK, maybe we’ve just been hearing weather-related terms that we aren’t so used to hearing in Southern California. This week snow fell in areas of the region where we don’t often see it, and then extreme weather — reports of avalanches and mudslides — impacted mountain communities, even shutting down all highways to the Big Bear area and leaving some roadways with escorts, like on the 15 Freeway through the Cajon Pass Thursday night. But the cold and wet weat...
