Blizzards

Scientific Description

A blizzard is a long-lasting snowstorm that has a temperature near 10 degrees or lower. They are accompanied by winds
that must be at least 35 mph. It usually starts out when cold air mass moves out of the arctic into an area out of the
milder climate. There also must be a lot of blowing snow and decreasing visibilty for a duration of at least 3 hours. You need three things to have a blizzard; cold air at surface, lots of moisture, and lift. Warm air must rise over cold air.
