What is thundersnow? Get ready for a high-speed arctic snap that will cause chaos
Advertisement
The rare phenomenon occurs when thunderstorms - which are much more common in summer months - form in wintry conditions.

If the weather is cold the rain associated with a thunderstorm can then fall as snow and thus is called thundersnow, said the Met Office.

It said such a scenario is unusual because it can only occur in a few months of the year.

The Met Office said: "Interestingly, the snow contained within the thunderstorm acts to dampen the sound of the thunder and while a the thunder from a typical thunderstorm might be head many miles away, the thunder during a thundersnow event will only be heard if you within two to three miles of the lightning.

"When thundersnow occurs at night the lightning seems brighter - this is because the lightning reflects off the snowflakes.".

Back in March morning drivers on the M62 saw what's known as thundersnow, and a driver tried to capture it.

The moment of truth comes at around seven seconds into the clip, when you see two brief flashes on the windscreen.

I've seen "Thundersnow". Expect vivid purple and pink colored lightning. Fascinating weather phenom.

What I hear above those storm clouds cannot be compared to thunder.
More like very large aircraft with engine or mechanical troubles in their sprayers.

I'd like to see that. I'm looking up all the time. Seems what is happening on the Earth surface is depressing but the sky above me calms me right out.

Glad I didn't see that. It was warm here in South BC for a day . This morning the thermometer read -22C. Funny. All these super low temps . the one day it was -5C. Tee shirt weather.

Seen it several times here in north east Oklahoma.

Back in 2007 we had a crazy bad winter storm that put about an inch or more of ice on everything and then snowed on the ice.

Everyone was stuck in there homes. It was a bad deal. Hope to see it again only worse.

When we don't know is when we won't though?
