    it snowed all night (Past Simple/Perfect or Continuous)

    Hi everyone,
    Can I use any of these sentences?

    1. It snowed all night.
    2. It has snowed all night.
    3. It has been snowing all night.

    Thank you.

    Re: it snowed all night (Past Simple/Perfect or Continuous)

    This is my interpretation of your three sentences:

    1. It snowed all night = It is no longer snowing.
    2. It has snowed all night = It's possibly still snowing but we can't be sure.
    3. It has been snowing all night = It's still snowing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
