When it's happening in the moment you're speaking(1) or happening for a long period(2):

  1. ¡Oh, está nevando ahora!

  2. Está nevando estos días

Since this post is about Spanish, could you move it to the Spanish forum? More of the people who are interested in Spanish will see it there, and it will help keep this forum easy to navigate for those who aren't currently studying Spanish.

Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to Spanish. Here's a guide on how to move a post: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/16609773.

Thanks :)

Did you notice you posted this to the general Duolingo forum rather than the Spanish forum?

Never "hace nevando". It is "nieva" (= it snows) or "està nevando" (=it's snowing).
