Well, I know you certainly have to have NO WIND! Harhar!

Yes, temps and humidity needs to be JUST SO to form this kind of flake, which here seems to be right around 18-20 degrees F, and who knows what humidity up there in the clouds?

Flakes like this are really not that common.

This is so awesome! I've got to try it this winter, but I imagine the conditions have to be just right to capture one!

Yes there are many Wilma, mostly their differences describe the circumstances of snow, ie. falling snow, (and fallen snow) snow on the ground, melting snow, -flakes, -storms, chunks of snow, granular show... and also all the different terms for ice... ice berg, -crystals, -floating... it seems endless!

Here is a link to a (lengthy but interesting) writing by Larry Kaplan of the Alaska Native Language Center at the University in Fairbanks.

Gosh, I am enjoying your snowflakes, Katy. Aren't there many, many words for the different types of snow in the native languages of Alaska? Wonder which word applies here.....Beautiful!

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
