I am wondering if there is chance of snowing during a hurricane / cyclone / typhoon. What is your opinion? Do you know a cyclone which passed near a mountain with high peaks, and so it gave snow in this mountain?

Thanks in advance.

The simple answer is no.

Tropical cyclones are named such because they have symmetrical warm cores and mix the air far too much to provide snow even on a mountain.

Thank you very much for your reply. I think a cyclone has never reached in a tall peak. They avoid the tall peaks.
