BOSTON, MA (WALB) -

While snowfall records were being broken in the northeast, a rare weather event made Weather Channel Meteorologist Jim Cantore more excited than most during the winter storm.

Sunday's blizzard intensified to the point where thundersnow happened, and it was all caught on video.

Cantore just couldn't contain himself as it happened over and over again.

"Oh yes! Yes! Yes! We got it baby! We got it! Woooo!" he exclaimed.

But what is thundersnow? Meteorologist Dr. Greg Forbes says it is a snowstorm event in which thunder and lightning occur.

Thundersnow can be found where there is relatively strong instability and abundant moisture above the surface, such as above a warm front. Thundersnow is sometimes observed downstream of the Great Salt Lake and the Great Lakes during lake-effect snowstorms too.

Areas of New England reported nearly 2 feet of total snow over the weekend. Forecasters said another winter blast might hit the region midweek.
