    No.  It falls as ice crystals. No liquid water. It is the same as a big desert minus the heat.

    The total precipitation on Antarctica, averaged over the entire continent, is about 166 millimetres (6.5 inches) per year. Almost all Antarctic precipitation falls as snow. Rainfall is rare and mainly occurs during the summer in coastal areas and surrounding islands. Note that the quoted precipitation is a measure of its equivalence to water, rather than being the actual depth of snow.

    No-

    Antarctica is actually a desert, which means very little precip occurs there over the course of a year. When it does fall, it comes down as snow, it sticks on the ground causing everything to turn to ice, and build up into glaciers.
