This spell summons snow clouds to the area over the course of an hour. When the clouds have gathered, a light snowstorm begins. Visibility ranges are reduced by 3/4, imposing a –8 penalty to all Spot, Search, and Listen checks. It makes ranged weapon attacks impossible, except for siege weapons, which have a –4 penalty to attack. The wind automatically extinguishes unprotected flames and has a 50% chance of extinguishing protected flames
This spell is affected by the season: in winter, early spring, and late autumn the snow will not melt and leaves up to 1d6 inches of snow afterward, which reduces movement by half. In the summer, the snow melts on contact with the ground.
Material Component: Air bottled during a snowstorm.
