Happens probably 2 or 3 times a year here in Michigan. Not unusual at all.

Yup, that's what I was going to say...

Though, not in the coldest months. Usually at the tail end of winter when it begins to warm up. If during the day it was warmer, then the temp drops at night and a storm is coming, then the cold and warm air mix, we'll have snow and lightening and thunder (more thunder)

Rut ro! Speaking of storms.....YIKES! It's begining to thunder and lightening here now.

Awww, my poor pup is hiding under my desk...lol

I sure wish I could!

We live on a lake and I know it'll be darn near Aug till it's dry in our front yard.
It's a tad too soggy here in MI...I want OUT!

I think mother nature is playing a joke on us today. We need rain badly, you can see the dark clouds and even smell the rain, but only a 10% chance of rain. sad.gif Hopefully the weatherman was wrong, we could sure use a good down pour.

I was wondering if someone can help. I'm from deep south Texas and my husband and I keep arguing about whether it lightenings during snowstorms. I have searched the web and found nothing. Could anyone help???



Answer: No.

Maybe in blizzards, but never have i heard such a thing, and im in Canada. ph34r.gif

Well, I appreciate everybody's posts, but it seems that everyone is torn down the middle. Can anyone give me proof that it can happen?  rolleyes.gif

From the WTOL-TV Toledo, OH website:

Did I Hear Thunder with Snow?

On Tuesday evening, the snow was falling hard and I thought I heard a rumble of thunder.   Is that possible?


Actually thunder occured with the burst of snow.   This is a somewhat rare occurence, but the strongest of cold fronts have the potential to produce thunder.   The process is almost the same as a summertime thunderstorm.  Relatively warm air is found near the surface compared to cold air at high altitudes.  This leads to strong vertical motions that push air upward and downward.   The movement can lead to thunder and even a rare bolt of lightning.  When this happens you can bet there will be a very heavy burst of snow that may lead to extremely low visibilities.    Thunderstorms that form in winter are weak and short-lived.

Yes, it can have lightning, but it is rare...

It has happened once here in Michigan that I remeber.

I'm from the North East U.S., in a city famous for their snow storms and yes indeed, we have had thunder and lightning during our snowstorms. It sure is an interesting event, too bad I don't have any pics to share. It happens atleast once or twice during the winter.

I have heard thunder in a snowstorm but I can't recall ever seeing lightning, however, I am usually hiding indoors when it snows, with cocoa.
