The day after Christmas, a blizzard passed through the Northeast, and more than 20 inches of snow blanketed the New York City area. Some of these shots were taken the day after Christmas just a few hours after snowfall started, and the others were captured on December 27 on my way to work. In the evening of December 26, there was a rare occurrence of thunder and lightning during the snowstorm. According to newsnationalgeographic.com, thundersnow—when thunder and lighting occur during a snowstorm—most often appears in late winter or early spring, experts say. That's because the ingredients for thundersnow—a mass of cold air on top of warm, plus moist air closer to the ground—often come together during that time.
