AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — It’s that time of year already when snowfall is becoming a concern for our area. For those curious about how snow forms we explain it here, while also answering some common questions regarding snow.

We went to the Don Harrington Discovery Center to find out more about the snow creation process. Community engagement manager, Jennifer Noble, is here to explain the setup for us.

She answers questions about the temperature criterion, atmospheric conditions, and the distinctions between snow, sleet, and freezing rain.
