Fun Fact Friday

Fun fact Friday!

Today’s fun fact is about thundersnow, because apparently, some parts of Scotland witnessed this phenomenon through the night (see Twitter).

1. Thundersnow, is an unusual kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the main precipitation instead of rain

2. Thundersnow occurs when the air closest to the ground is warm enough to rise and form a thunderstorm, but still cool enough that it freezes into snow

3. Thundersnow is unusual because it can only occur in a few months of the year, the Met Office explains. What a dampener!

4. When thundersnow occurs at night the lightning appears brighter – this is because the light reflects off of the snowflakes

5. Normally thunder from a typical thunderstorm can be heard many miles away. The thunder during a thundersnow event will only be heard if you are within 2 to 3 mile radius of the lightning

So, there you have it; possibly everything you ever wanted to know about thundersnow?
