The sleet predicted for this evening has come and along with it we seem to be getting a touch of hail and thatelusive meteorological beast, the thundersnow. Just ask Twitter. We've heard reports of it over all over the city—did you see thundersnow?
In related news, NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center actually managed to study the phenomenon recently in Alabama. And here's a video of the thundersnow durring Blizzageddon.

This video is from a thundersnow in 2006 - but I thought it a good time to repost since NY is having one now...
