Snow Vortex Big and Small
Description: Today in the west end of Johnstown along the Conemaugh river I filmed the snow as it was being driven towards Johnstown by winds of over 30 mph, enough wind to make some snow vortex`s

Nice video of the snow vortex's. We get the same function here in the desert with sand. -- Stormy Weather
Indeed. Wind vortexes or vortices are all around us constantly, we just need something - like dust, sand, snow or fall leaves - to make them visible to the human eye. -- weathermatrix
Sir where do you see a tornado of snow? I see a lot of snow just blowing around, ok the one at end heading your direction maybe. Ok Mr. Accuweather explain how a vortex is made. Unlike a tornado here we have no warm air mixing no jet streams nothing. -- jodimiller
Great video of the snow blowing down thru the valley. You can see the snow fly over the buildings, hitting them like a sand blaster effect. -- BeckyMarie
