Weather School: Too Cold to Snow?

Is it ever too cold to snow? Meteorologist Michael Page has the answer!
Is it ever "too cold to snow?" Meteorologist Michael Page says it would have to be REALLY cold for that to happen, as in temperatures near -40! At that point there's very little moisture in the atmosphere. Also when it gets that cold, it's hard to get lift in the atmosphere. That's a critical component to producing moisture that reaches the surface.
