Definition: 1. Any warm wind blowing over a snow surface; usually applied to a foehn wind, that is, schneefresser. See also chinook. 2. A fog over a snow surface; so called because of the frequently observed rapidity with which a snow cover disappears after a fog sets in. As water vapor from the air condenses on the snow, the latent heat of condensation causes the snow to become warmer and melt faster.  AMSglossary
