Wacky Weather Words

It's almost May, and it's been raining, snowing, and hailing, often all at once.
So, what does one call the weather when these elements coexist?

Snail (n.): hail mixed with snow.
"Gee whiz, Jen, It's snailing outside!"

Railow (n.): hail mixed with rain and snow.
"By golly, Fran, this railow is cold, painful, and miserable!"
