Snow in space?

This morning, while coming in my office, I heard the  weather forecasting from an Italian broadcast news. They spoke about "snow above 500 thousands meters" (sic!). This means that there is snow in space, because 500 thousands meters or 500 km is - more or less - the average altitude of the Low Earth Orbit, where are the International Space Station and of Hubble Space Telescope.
