}} Rain and snow mixed or Sleet is precipitation composed of rain and partially melted snow. Unlike ice pellets, which are hard, and freezing rain, which is fluid until striking an object, this precipitation is soft and translucent, but it contains some traces of ice crystals, due to partially fused snowflakes. In any one location, it usually occurs briefly as a transition phase from rain to snow or vice versa. Its METAR code is RASN.<ref>http://glossary.ametsoc.org/wiki/Rain_and_snow_mixed</ref>
