You call forth a terrible blizzard to visit Ithreia’s wrath upon your enemies. Wind in the area increases to windstorm strength and the temperature drops to extreme cold (creatures take 1d6 points of cold damage each minute). The falling snow in the area blocks vision beyond 5 feet; targets within 5 feet have concealment and those beyond have total concealment. 6 inches of snow accumulates each round. Snow is difficult terrain. Snow at least as deep as half a creature’s height takes 4 squares of movement to enter. A creature can only burrow through snow up to 5 feet as a full-round action if the snow is over its head and it must hold its breath or begin to suffocate if it has not burrowed adjacent to the surface. The snow vanishes when the spell ends.
