Snow forms when water vapor condenses and freezes into ice crystals. As the ice crystals fall from the clouds, they melt and then refreeze. This creates larger ice crystals which produce fluffy snow.
Snow comes from the clouds in the sky when they are saturated with water and released in a freezing climate. It would be rain coming out of the clouds if they were over a warm section of earth, but if they are in a cold area with freezing temperatures, that rain comes out as snow or sleet.
