Ground blizzard refers to a weather condition where loose snow or ice on the ground is lifted and blown by strong winds. The primary difference between a ground blizzard and a regular blizzard is that in a ground blizzard no precipitation is produced at the time, but rather all the precipitation is already present in the form of snow or ice at the surface. The most important topographic element in a blizzard is the requirement for a vast amount of large open and relatively flat land. The environment must also support temperatures cold enough to prevent any snow on the ground from melting and bonding the ice crystals together.
