What are snow showers?

A weather observation of snow showers, at an airport for instance, means that light or moderate snow is falling intermittently.

Erica's Answer:

That means it's not a steady, long-lasting snow. An observation of snow, on the other hand, indicates that the snow is falling over a widespread area, and it is falling steadily.
