The formation
A snow crystal is a crystal that forms in earth’s atmosphere when the temperature is below freezing. Snow crystals are made from condensation of water vapor and a very small piece of ice or even dust.
Characteristics of snow crystals
Snow crystals are very small, they range in size from 0.02 to 0.5 inch across. Most snow crystals are see through or transparent, much like glass.
Snow crystals come in many different shapes and sizes. There are seven different types of snowflakes overall. Some of these types are hail, ice pellets, and irregular crystals.
Fun Facts
When snowflakes fall to the ground they layer on top of each other. In between each layer there is a lot of air.

When it snows in a warm climate the snow crystals will often stick together when they fall from the sky. On the other hand, in a cool climate the snow crystals will mostly fall as individual crystals.
In a wet climate 6 centimeters of snow will only end up being 1 centimeter of water when the snow melts. In a dry climate 20 centimeters of snow will end up being 1 centimeter of water.

How do snowflakes form?
Snow in different climates
In the winter snow can cover as much as 23 Percent of the Earth.
