Snow is a type of precipitation (take a look at this fun presentation), such as rain, sleet, or hail that fall from the clouds. The Earth's water is always in movement and the water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes this movement on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. A snowflake is an aggregate of ice crystals that forms while falling in and below a cloud.
