Ever heard of a snow STORM Troy? Oh wait actually probably not I forgot that your kind runs for cover at 50 degrees!

Right. I think snow is fine. Snow usually comes in what we call storms and just cause it isn't rain doesn't make it not storm lighting.

In the thread, this shot was the best rendition of what I had in mind (Dark clouds with sunlight on the train), however many others are certainly acceptable. Snow was a little far.

Snow storm light is the light that is around when there is a snowstorm. Sunny day light is the kind of light around when it is sunny out. Cloudy day light is around when its cloudy out.

My parents car? I thought you were the 30 year old that lived at your parents home? I have my own car at college thank you very much.

Storm light is well known and doesn't appear during many or any snow storms.

Here is an example of shaky snow storm light. The snow storm light actual makes it appear like the camera isn't on a tripod. I think it has to do with vector laws, snow flakes, and light bending?

Max, as defined in my last post, that is not what was intended.

Sigh... always splitting hairs. Snow squalls had been passing through the area all day, and that is one in the background, though the train is perfectly lit. Snow storm light.

If you've ever seen lighting during a snow storm, you know that they are infact storms.

I take storm light two ways.

1. Very dark stormy background with sunshine shining in.

2. Odd lighting casts in shades of orange, green, yellow, or purple created by the storm.

I agree, BTW that video you linked to needs a new tripod if it's affected so much by snow.

Good, I thought it was the IS focusing on the snow.

The conditions that have to exist for snow to occur do not lend themselves to "storm light"

In fact, while there can be "sunshowers" and storm light associated with it, I dont know that there can be "sun snowshowers" due to the environmental conditions which have to exist.

I could be wrong, I dont live in a snowy climate.

About 6 years ago we had thunder and lightning during a snow storm. Unfortunately it was during the evening so too dark for storm light, but I would have loved to see the effect during the day.

I may have to wait a long time. According to the local weather program it was the first time since 1973 that a thunderstorm and heavy snow had occurred together in our part of the UK, so a rare combination round here.

Thunder has nothing to do with storm light. Not every storm has storm light as I think of storm light being.

That is what we call a 'snow squall'. Essentially a fast moving mini-blizzard that can cause a white-out for a few minutes, then clear to perfect sun. I posted a shot earlier of a sunlit BNSF unit with a squall in the background.

If one defines storm light as perfect sun in the foreground with the storm or dark clouds in the background, then a receding squall would fit the bill. If one defines storm light as light conditions within a storm, then a blizzard or heavy snow would fit the bill. If one defines storm light as either of the above except only involving rain, then snow is never considered storm light, though by definition, snow is a storm regardless of intensity as it is rain falling as a solid.

Semantics.
