A snowsquall (or sometimes, Snow squall) is the term that is used for a snow shower that is sudden and accompanied by blowing snow as a result of high winds. While a snowsquall is similar to a blizzard, it is localized in space or in time.

Lake effect snow and Frontal snowsquall are the two kinds of snowsqualls. It is important to note that both varieties of snowsqualls are extremely dangerous for motorists. This sudden change in conditions can prove challenging and frequently results in multiple-vehicle collisions. Lake effect snow may result in road closures and can thus even paralyse cities

As a noun, a squall may be defined as a sudden violent wind which is often accompanied by rain or snow. In addition to other connotations it may also mean a short-lived commotion.
