I got 3 of them today after having an alt parked in Storm Peaks for a few days. You have to hustle as it doesn't snow for long. I had just enough time to port to Dalaran and fly there and there were others farming them too.
Finally I found this pet today :) First pet battle in the minefield and it was a rare so no more camping in Storm Peaks for this one :D
Just picked up an uncommon on Exodar near K3... and there was no visible snow...
Edit: Never mind. there must have been some lag. It is currently snowing on Exodar realm.
Snowing on both Windrunner and Trollbane as of right now, given the comments below if you want to make a level 1 toon, I'll glady fly you out to storm peaks and protect you while you get one.
First one I saw was rare, but there were about a dozen others running around.
For anyone trying to farm for this pet.
I recently opened a ticket asking why it was snowing in the Storm Peaks but there were no kits.
The reply was:
This pet can be tricky to get now with cross realms, and connected realms, because in order for him to actually show up it must be snowing on your home realm. Since this is a connected realm and a cross realm zone you can end up seeing snow for other realms, but since it isn't snowing on your home realm you won't see the Arctic Fox Kit.
Its snowing, in my opinion. Small stars falling from the sky at different speeds. Is this not snowing? But no foxkits to be seen.. I feel fooled.

I was battling in Icecrown when it started to snow. I flew to Storm Peaks and it wasn't snowing there. However, the first pet I saw was an Arctic Fox Kit. I've been hunting for months and was never there when the weather was right. Over the next hour, I flew around battling foxes, with no snow falling. The best that I got was a Common. This was between 8:00-9:30 server time. I know people will camp, log in to see if the weather has changed and not bother looking around. Give it a shot!
Wish I read this section first! I only half looked at it and after ages flying I saw that it needs to be snowing >.>
Stormreaver: (1700 Central Daylight Time, 15 Sept.) - Snowing
Area 52: It's been snowing for about 2 hours so far. This is my first time commenting; sorry for not thinking of doing so sooner.
To answer some questions:
1). Weather is random. The developers deliberately made the effects impossible to predict because they did not want players to be able to time weather. So don't tear your hair out trying to find the magic method. RNG pure and simple. :/
2). Snowflakes will sometimes only appear when you stop moving, almost as though you are "out-flying" the graphic. So definately check your minimap or the pet visuals to make sure!
You have to go at night between 11pm and 2am server time. The locations marked on the map are correct. I found so many down by K3, none rare but I have a stone.
Can anyone tell me how often does it snow in the Storm Peaks? I pass there every day but it never snows. The Arctic Fox Kit is the last pet I need to complete the "Safari of Northrend" achievement, so this little information would help me a lot!
PS: Do I have to wait for Christmas?
4:00 EST on Eonar. Snowing all over the zone. Kits are out everywhere. Just picked up 2 uncommons and I'm flying all over on the hunt for a rare. :)
My favourite wolf. Comes in P/S breed with 289 power and 289 speed. Use Dazzling Dance and you will be faster than both 341 speed Death Adders and 358 speed Rabbits. This will make you really chew them up quickly since they often are not very durable. Crouch is such a powerful move, makes you very durable. Howl can of course be useful, but in PvP opponents are not as static as the PvE opponents. Very good pet, also not very common. Use them!
Snowing now!!! 8.50 p.m. Melb time. 3/5/2014.
01.05.14, just found two arctic fox kits and it was NOT snowing in either place that I was. 2nd one was a rare thankfully. First one i found on the ice plane between Valkyrion and Frosthold, second one near K3.
Just happened upon a snow storm in the Peaks today. One thing someone said earlier that did not seem true was that it only snows in certain regions of the peaks. I found it snowing in both the hills and the plains. Managed to score two rares. While flying overhead I could not tell it was snowing. After I landed, I could see the snowfall and it was snowing hard. If your flying around looking for a snowfall you might not notice it, so look for spawned Arctic Fox Kits instead, they'll be plentiful.
