I'm Nurul Hazwani bt Ishak from DEC 5A. This is Digital and Mobile Communication (DNMC) blog. The head title of my blog which is Winter Storm. 
It's cover for:
  • Introduction 
  • Types of storms 
  • Danger of storms 
  • What make winter storms
  • News of winter storm 
  • Effects of winter storm 
  • Solution for winter storms 
Actually, my blog's title is under natural disaster. I'm sure all of you know what is natural disaster means by. 

There are lots of natural disaster of the world. I hope my blog can give information for readers.I have provide lots of information and pictures here. Foremost, I hope you will enjoy with my blog especially MADAM HAWINDA.....

Luv U!
Thank You for cooperation.

Winter Storms

A natural disaster is the consequence or effect of a natural, hazardous event, occurring when human activities and natural phenomenon become enmeshed.

Winter storms are part of natural disaster that people should know. All sorts of destructive weather occur during the winter. There are several types of winter storms, which are snow storm. ice storm and blizzards.

Many events may be large in scope and cover a wide geographical area and if not, they still tend to devastate numerous areas with power outages, traffic snarls and freezing temperatures.

Winter Storm has three types. For your information, there are snowstorm, ice storm and blizzard storm. Here, I want to share more information about the types of Winter Storm.

What is Snowstorm?

Snowstorms are storms where large amounts of snow fall. Snow is less dense than liquid water, by a factor of approximately 10 at temperatures slightly below freezing, and even more at much colder temperatures. Snowstorms are usually considered less dangerous than ice storms. However, the snow can bring secondary dangers.

What is a blizzard?
A massive snowstorm with strong winds and other conditions meeting certain criteria is known as Blizzards. Blizzards are severe winter storms that pack a combination of blowing snow and wind resulting in very low visibilities. Sometimes strong winds pick up snow that has already fallen, creating a blizzard.
Heavy winds may affects people around

What is Ice Storm?
An ice storm is a type of winter storm characterized by freezing rain, also known as a glaze event or in some parts of the United States as a silver thaw. Ice storms were more common than blizzards.

Ice crystals fall through a cloud of super-cooled droplets minute cloud droplets that have fallen below freezing temperature but have not frozen. The ice crystal plows into the super-cooled droplets and they immediately freeze to it. This process forms graupel, or snow pellets, as the droplet continue to accumulate on the crystal. The pellets bounce when they hit the ground.

Graupel Snow

Ice pellets
Out ahead of the passage of a warm front, falling snow may partially melt and refreeze into a frozen rain drop before it reaches the ground. These ice pellets are called sleet. Because it is easily seen and does not accumulate ice, it is not as dangerous as freezing rain.

Rime is a milky white accumulation of super-cooled cloud or fog droplets that freeze when they strike an object that has a temperature of 32 °F (0 °C), the freezing point of water. The process is called riming when super-cooled cloud droplets attach to ice crystals in the formation of graupel. Rime ice can pose a hazard to an airliner when it forms on a wing as an aircraft flies through a cloud of super-cooled droplets.

What Makes a Winter storm?

Cold Air:
Below freezing temperatures in the clouds and near the ground are necessary to make snow or ice.
This image highlights a preponderance of Cold Air 
To form clouds and precipitation, air blowing across body of water, such as a lake or the ocean, is and excellent source of moisture.

Here is a good example of a storm drawing in extra moisture
Something to raise the moist air to form the clouds and cause precipitation, for example of lift is warm air colliding with cold air and being forced to rise over the cold dome. The boundary between the warm and cold air masses is called front. Another example of lift is air flowing up a mountainside.
