Is this talking about a certain range? Like pointing to a map and saying is never snows from here to there?

Usually, you use this sentence to talk about the place you are currently at, as in "it never snows (in the city I'm in)" or "it never snows (in the province I'm in)" or "it never snows (in the country I'm in)."
