The Natural Phenomenon In Arizona That Only Happens During Wintertime

Snow and thunderstorms seem like polar opposites, but they can actually occur at the same time! Known as “thundersnow,” this rare phenomenon can be seen in Arizona during winter – and it’s definitely a sight to behold.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Have you ever seen thundersnow in person? If so, we’d love to hear about it from a firsthand perspective. Check out our previous article for more photos of Arizona during massive winter storms: What Real-Life Looks Like Inside The Snowiest Town In Arizona.
