Snow occurs when water droplets in clouds freeze, and these droplets then act as a nucleus onto which molecules of water vapor adhere, forming larger ice crystals. Once the growing snowflake is too heavy for the movement... More »

Snow flurries refers to light snowfall with no accumulation on the ground, and snow showers is the term used to describe light to moderate snowfall where a small amount of accumulation is possible. A snow shower starts a... More »
