Sleet is an atmospheric condition characterized by a mixture of rain and snow.

Sleet usually occurs during cold fronts and when temperatures are near or slightly below freezing. It is a type of winter precipitation that can accumulate on roads, making them slippery and dangerous. When temperatures are extremely low, sleet can occur in the form of pellets or even grains of ice.
