snowstorm new york city


People are loving this thundersnow!

The blizzard pounding parts of the Northeast United States is bringing out love for an evasive weather phenomenon: Thundersnow.

As the storm hit, people across the Northeast reported with glee, spottings of thundersnow — a thunderstorm with snow instead of rain.

What is thundersnow?

It seems odd to celebrate a storm that canceled flights and closed schools, but people are embracing the special feeling of hearing a loud thunder crash during a roaring blizzard. Plus, who could forget Weather Channel hypeman Jim Cantore’s epic thundersnow celebration from 2015?

MoMA is closing today at 2 pm due to the storm. All MoMA Film screenings for the remainder of the day have been cancelled. We plan to be open regular hours tomorrow, but please check our social media channels or for the latest updates. Stay safe, everyone!
