Tomorrow we are supposed to get that they call a wintry mix in the morning. That is a mixture of sleet, snow and could have some freezing rain. It will go over the freezing mark and turn to all rain in the afternoon.
I found some pictures of wintry scenes at national parks and from a national forest. They are from the month of January, this year.

The Map.
US map of the states by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

us_map EPAIt’s a good thing that these national parks in big states, because you can see the abbreviations for the state names. I’ll say what state each park is in, so you can see it’s location.

In the labels, I’ll use NPS for National Park Service.

The first picture was taken in the Arches National Park. The picture was taken by NPS. The park is in Utah (UT). Utah is turquoise a couple of states up from the bottom of the map.
