A snowstorm or a blizzard. What are the difference between those? The big difference between a snowstorm and a blizzard is the speed of the wind and the visibility. The weather conditions of a blizzard are as following:

  • The wind blows over 35 mph per hour
  • The visibility is less than a quarter mile
  • These conditions should continue for three hours of longer.

Did you know that a blizzard doesn’t always contain snowfall? If the wind is blowing the snow on the surface, we also call it a blizzard.

Snowstorm or blizzard, there is no difference for us. We always make sure it doesn’t affect your business.
