NYC’s 1/26/11 snowstorm featured rare thundersnow flashes — thunder and lightning during a winter snow storm. This was taken from the Union Square area in NYC looking over the west side and across the Hudson into New Jersey. Note: the visibility is very poor with the snow really coming down in this night video, but you can still see a few lightning flashes.

Huge fluffy snowflakes during the NYC snowstorm on 1/7/11. Big flakes, little accumulation.

New York City and the rest of the east coast were hit with a nasty crippling blizzard the day after Christmas 2010. This is how it looked just after the snow started to fall around 11am. The visibility was getting poor to the point where the skyline was completely missing an hour later. Bizarrely, there were also some lightning flashes and thunder during the evening, uncharacteristic of winter storms — I thought I was seeing and hearing things, but news reports confirmed it! And there were also high winds just short of hurricane speed according to the weatherman. Pity the poor travelers on Amtrak and those trying to catch flights, as trains and planes came to a standstill. Glad to be inside during this mess!
