While dropping snow and rain throughout the Northeast, the second nor'easter to strike in March also produced the rare event known as "thundersnow." The New York office of the National Weather Service had announced earlier Wednesday morning that the region may see the uncommon meteorological phenomenon later in the day. The term thundersnow describes a storm with thunder and lightning that also drops snow. Such events are rare because the storms that drop snow are usually very different from the storms that cause thunder and lightning. When a snowstorm develops a more intense upward lift of air, that can lead to thundersnow.
