So I was playing Fletcher and I loaded into islands of ice and there was a "snowstorm" icon were there would be a cyclone one. Visibility was affected but not like a cyclone. the battle was amazing and I would love to know how exactly the snowstorm works

Thunderstorm Front in Random Battles

In Operation Hermes, we tested the Thunderstorm Front, a new mechanic that affects events happening within a particular region of the map. The mechanics received a warm welcome from players, so we decided to test it further in Random Battles.

The Thunderstorm Front will appear only in Tier X battles on the following three maps:
  • "North" (Domination mode)
  • "Hotspot" (Domination mode)
  • "Islands of Ice" (Epicenter)

However, the Cyclone effect will no longer be present on these maps.

Battles featuring the Thunderstorm Front will only be available for ships of Tier VIII, IX and X.

The visual appearance of the Thunderstorm Front varies depending on the terrain and weather—but we can tell you that you’re in for rain and blizzards!

On the Minimap, the Thunderstorm area is depicted as a gray circle. A special indicator notifies you upon approaching and entering an area affected by the Thunderstorm Front. The changing weather conditions will make it harder to detect ships both by air and by sea: with the detectability range of destroyers and the other types of ships reduced by 10% and 20%, respectively. The visibility range is reduced to 30 km; the period of increased detectability of a ship after firing the main guns is also reduced, returning to normal in 7 seconds instead of 20 seconds; and the maximum dispersion of shells in the area affected by the foul weather increases by a multiple of 1.3. The Thunderstorm Front does not have any effect on the operation of a ship's consumables.

If there is an area of foul weather between ships, their detectability is calculated taking into account the visibility modifier. However, this does not affect potential third observers whose line of sight doesn't cross (or run through) the Thunderstorm Front zone.

In Epicenter mode, bad weather can move along the map left to right, or vice versa, or can even stay motionless in the center of the map.

Snow forms when tiny ice crystals in clouds stick together to become snowflakes. If enough crystals stick together, they'll become heavy enough to fall to the ground. 

Snowflakes that descend through moist air that is slightly warmer than 0 °C will melt around the edges and stick together to produce big flakes. Snowflakes that fall through cold, dry air produce powdery snow that does not stick together.

Snow is formed when temperatures are low and there is moisture in the atmosphere in the form of tiny ice crystals.

Such dry humor will produce tiny little snowflakes.

Not in this forum. Here we see the formation of big fluffy snowflakes and get to watch them melt.
