WATCH - Snow Phenomenon Spotted

In Ohio today there’s a pretty neat natural wonder as high winds and snow have combined to create snowballs, all on their own.

These snow balls are known as snow rollers.

The National Weather Service says a snow roller is a rare meteorological phenomenon where large snowballs are formed when chunks of snow are blown along the ground by wind.

Some people describe the shapes like jumbo rolls of paper towels, bowling balls or huge doughnuts.
