I have been translating a NHK Easy news item but I can't get over a sentence.


I understand each word however I can't find out the sentence ultimate meaning.

    Give it a shot at translating, so we can see that you understand each word. It's a straight-forward sentence, like これはペンです, so I don't quite understand where you're having problems. – Earthliŋ Jan 31 '16 at 18:10

Noun-A + のような + Noun-B =
Noun-B like Noun-A

Sleet is snow (which is) like rain.

Another example:

I saw a man (Who looked) like Yamada.
