I have been looking it up and it depends on where you live for example if you live at the coast then it is more likely considering the fact warmer weather from the ocean is moving inland. In a regular thunderstorm the cold and the hot react because of the negative and posatives in the atmosphere. Same for the coast example because of teh warmer moving into the land but if you live far inland I don't know what to say.

I don't think it can. It is impossible for it to snow and rain at the same time because snow needs a colder temperature than rain but I think there can be lighning anytime.It can also Thunder at any time to.

Wrong it can and it did a few years ago in Crystal Palace, London a few years ago. Part of my degree is atmospheric science. I didn't think it was possible. It is one of the strangest things I have ever or probably will ever see. The sky lit up a white colour.
