Thundersnow is another word for winter thunderstorm or a thunder snowstorm.
It is an unusual kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain.
It is often a part of a severe winter storm or blizzard.
The thunder from a usual thunderstorm can be heard many miles away while the thunder from thundersnow can usually only be heard within a two to three mile radius from the lightning.
In the United States, March is the peak month. On average, only 6.3 events are reported per year.
