Beware Lightning During A Thundersnow Event!
Thundersnow. Strong winter snowstorms and blizzards commonly produce lightning strikes, a phenomenon referred to as 'thundersnow'. More uncommon than spring and summer thunderstorms, thunder snows do occur in the Midwest, and they are bred by the same unstable weather conditions. Essentially, they are thunderstorms that occur in colder months, and they are accompanied by thunder and lightning. Lightning and thunder can occur with any type of winter precipitation - including snow, sleet ('thundersleet') and freezing rain.
The storm of Oct 1997 in Lincoln, NE was a thundersnow event and dumped over 13 inches of wet snow. If this event happens again, SERVPRO of Lincoln will be ready!
