Why Does It Snow?

Answer

Snow occurs when cold temperatures transform the water vapour in the atmosphere into the solid state of ice directly without first going through the liquid stage. As soon as the temperature rises up again, the snow melts back into liquid water.

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.
It snows because of the cold air freezing the water vapor in the atmosphere. The cold air freezes water vapor in clouds as well. It turns them into ice crystals.
