Snow


In addition to being the name given to frozen water that, in a solid state, falls from the clouds, it is the result of a meteorological phenomenon that consists of the precipitation of small ice crystals. These snow crystals adopt geometric shapes with fractal characteristics and are grouped into flakes, they are small rough particles of granular material, when they descend on the earth’s surface, they cover everything with a white blanket.

This phenomenon is frequent in many regions of the world where the temperature is very low, at least in the winter season. Snow is water vapor that undergoes high deposition in the atmosphere at temperatures below 0°C and subsequently falls to the ground. These snowfalls when they are abundant, can cause material damage (infrastructure) of a city, it can also cause traffic accidents, deaths due to low temperatures and interrupt the daily activities of the region or city.

There are types of snow precipitation such as: snowfall is the fall or precipitation of snowflakes; snowstorm: it is a storm in which there is a heavy to intense precipitation of snow; snow blizzard: it is a snowfall or a blizzard accompanied by strong winds, visibility in this type of precipitation is reduced; sleet: it is a form of mixed precipitation. That is to say, it is a combination between levels of water and snowflakes, particularly melted; cinarra: is the fall of snow granules or granulated snow (white hail).

Countries or cities that have low temperatures mainly attract tourists because of the snow. Since the places suitable for practicing sports such as skiing or snowboarding.
