Snowflakes are formed when water vapor in the air condenses and freezes into ice crystals around tiny dust particles or other particles in the atmosphere. As these ice crystals continue to grow, they form unique and intricate shapes due to differences in temperature and humidity at different altitudes as they fall to the ground. Each snowflake has its own unique pattern and shape, making them a beautiful and fascinating natural phenomenon.
