Jim Cantore, Weather Channel meteorologist, freaks out on thundersnow
Weather phenomenon combines thunder, lightning with snow
Some people get excited about the weather. And then there is Jim Cantore.
The meteorologist for the Weather Channel is well known as the correspondent who reports from the paths of storms and hurricanes
Cantore was in storm-struck Plymouth, Mass., on Sunday, where the camera caught his reaction to a particular weather phenomenon: thundersnow.
With each boom, Cantore jumped around a snowy field yelling with glee.
"You can have your $500-million jackpot in Powerball or whatever the heck it was, but I’ll take this, baby,” Cantore hollered following the fourth boom.
Thundersnow is produced when there is enough instability in the atmosphere to produce lightning and thunder, while temperatures remain cold enough for precipitation to fall as snow.
