What is a cold snap?

I googled it. Apparently, it's the opposite of a heat wave, though in America the term I hear more often is "cold spell"

I hear and say "cold snap" all the time! I guess it's more of a southern saying. You're right about the meaning. :)

I say heat wave but don't have a term for "it's going to be really cold for a while." The people that read weather.com to my parents on local news shows seem to say "cold front."

That's actually helpful for people who might be confusing 한 with the native Korean number one 하나.

ohhh, there are much much more different '한's in Korean than these two. Such as: 限, 恨, 漢, 汗, 韓, and handful of others of both Korean and Sinic origin
