>Weather Explained: Where Snow forms

>

This is a first edition of Weather Explained, where we describe different weather patterns and the like.

Today, we focus upon where snow forms.

The reason why snow is forming there is due to the jet stream. The low will be tracking north northeast, so the snow follows it on the northern edge, as seen. This is typically where snow forms. Below the low pressure area, rain can be expected. Not always: temperatures play a big part.
