    @Jamesh, I am working on an article to explain this. But with all the snow at the moment it may take a few days..... I have to do some snow research 😃
    May the powder be with you.

    It literally translates as 'blockage' or dam. It makes sense to use it to describe a storm where the moisture sits on an area and precipitates.
