Typically, the snow is mostly cosmetic and does not have too much impact on the overall gameplay of GTA. The only meaningful use of snow in GTA Online is to indicate when you can get the game's secret UFO Tattoo.

On top of this, driving around can be a little more difficult and it is possible to throw snowballs as weapons too. In the past, it also meant that more cosmetics were coming for the game as well.

So far though, no official announcements have been made so there is an endless amount of possibilities of what Rockstar could include with the upcoming winter update.
