Hi Gail

Here is the simple answer:

Thundersnow is a thunderstorm that has snow reaching the surface instead of rain. Usually thunder and lightning are more commonly observed with warm season thunderstorms.

I have experienced this many times.. It's interesting if you know the technical lingo that goes with it.

For more info just Google "thundersnow"
