Upon casting the spell, a great storm of sleet would be conjured. Rain and sleet would pour from the skies, blocking sight in every form, even darkvision. And torches or fires lit in the area would immediately be put out. The fallen sleet would cause the ground to become very icy, slowing creatures. If the creatures were unable to balance, they would not be able to move for a while, and could even fall over.
