WRF output for the solid type precipitation

Dear Colleges,

I am interested in the WRF output for the solid type (frozen) precipitation.
As far as I know there are only two relevant variables, namely SR (fraction of frozen precipitation) and SNOW_ACC_NC "ACCUMULATED SNOW". While the snow_acc_nc is clear for me, I would like to know what kind (types) of frozen precipitation are included in the SR variable, e.g. snow, graupel, hail, freezing rain etc? Can you please clarify?
Also, if you can suggest me any other WRF variable which includes information of frozen precipitation or precipitation type it would be great. I am interested in graupel precipitation amount and mixed precipitation amount in mm.

Kind regards,
