  2. When do Blizzards Occur • Blizzards occur anytime between late fall and early spring.

  3. How do Blizzards Form • Snowstorms begin when colder air meets warmer air and begin to twist. • For the snow to actually form and fall from the clouds, some type of precipitation must be present in the clouds. • There also needs to be a combination of freezing temperature and heavy winds.

  4. Where Do Blizzards Occur • Blizzards are most common in the northern Mississippi Basin, in the central part of Canada and also in Russia. • Blizzards also occur in the Central Great Plains.

  5. Definition of a Blizzard • A severe snowstorm with strong winds and poor visibility • For a snow storm to be classified as a blizzard, winds must exceed 56km (35 mi) per hour • The temperature must be -7 degrees celcius or lower
