Weather Phenomenon Hits Ontario

For a second time this month, a thundersnow hit southern Ontario.

What is it you ask? It’s a weather phenomenon takes place when lightning and thunder strike during a snowfall.

Thunder and lightning was reported during a sudden snowfall on Wednesday afternoon in downtown Toronto, Burlington, Hamilton, on the QEW toward Niagara, in the Kawarthas, and near Woodstock.

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, thunderstorms occur when an air mass becomes so unstable that it overturns violently, usually when drastically different temperatures meet.

“It was incredible to experience,” shared a Toronto local. “One minute it was nice and sunny out, the next it started snowing and raining, then a few minutes later it was thundering and lighting! And then, as quickly as it started, it stopped. It was defiantly a different weather experience.”
