Winter thunderstorms occur when the air layer closer to the ground is warmer than the upper layers, however this layer also has to be cold enough to make snow. This tricky process means that winter thunderstorms are very rare as the right conditions do not come along often.

Jamie Robertson recorded this phenomenon at 12:15am near Belvedere Road in Lowestoft, hearing three loud claps of thunder about five minutes apart.
