Can someone define this word I have highlighted in yellow.
I think it might be a misprint as I never see this word in our forecast.

You could shower in snow... it'll melt when it hits ya.
You'll be a bit chilly afterward though. LOL

Not sure why they say snow showers - "showers" does make one think of rain... but I guess anything falling from the sky qualifies (meteor showers too).
