A climatology of sleet occurences in the United States was compiled using data for 1950-2001 from 232 weather stations. Sleet is one of the damaging forms of winter precipitation. The temporal distributions of sleet occurences across the nation during 1950-1999 reveal 3 regions with distinctly different time distributions : northern region, southern region, and western region. Nationally, the 50-year distribution showed no up or down trend, but from 1965 to 1999 sleep events did increase, based largely on up trends in the Northeast, East North Central and Central regions
