    ONCE OR TWICE

    Thundersnow, also known as a winter thunderstorm or a thunder snowstorm, is a relatively rare kind of thunderstorm with snow falling as the primary precipitation instead of rain. It typically falls in regions of strong upward motion within the cold sector of an extratropical cyclone, where the precipitation consists of ice pellets rather than snow. Thermodynamically, it is not different from any other type of thunderstorms but the top of the cumulonimbus are usually quite low.

    Yes, I have, and it completely caught me off guard. About twenty five years ago, it occured right behind a motel room I was staying in for awhile one winter in Maine. It sounded so close and loud that I could actually feel it. Until then I didn't know there could be thunder during a snowstorm, and I half expected to see pieces of the building to come flying through the air, as I had initially thought part of the building had blown up.
    Yes, 2 times this past winter and 1 time the previous winter. I also saw lightening in one of the thundersnows, this past winter.

    Yes this year when we had real bad snow!

    Yes when I was a kid in New Enland and strangely a couple of times in GA.

    Yes I have heard thunder during a snow storm's 2 or 3 times even saw lighting flash's weather is very strange and beautiful and then in a eye blink becomes a complete nightmare! ""

    yes, this past winter 2 or 3 times here in michigan.
    carmaxable

    thunder is caused by warm and cold air coming together. makes sense. just odd sounding
    i've heard of it but would love more to see it..
    Yes, several times here in New Hampshire. Just this past winter we had thunder during a wicked snowstorm.
    yes, this past winter 2 or 3 times here in michigan.
