Graupel registering as heavy rain

As the northeast storm continues its development; graupel
has begun falling with cyclogenesis off the North Carolina coast this evening.
Graupel is registering as “Heavy” precipitation and driving up precipitation
totals at an usually high rate for adjacent Sky units. This may be exactly what Sky is supposed
to do, I’m just sharing it with users as this is my first experience with graupel mixed with heavy snowfall rates. This may be similar to small hail and its influence on precipitation measurement.
