What the difference between low-light and flat light?

I'm thinking it's the following but want to make sure before getting my new lenses:

Flat light: sun is out, but its snowing

low light: twilight time

I'm sure i'm wrong...

low light is when its getting dark as in almost night.
flat light is when its still like really bright but its cloudy if that makes sense. its a typical day in the midwest winter. its hard to explain lol, its like when you look at the snow and its really bright but theres no sun out, its harder to find definition in the terrain still.

that's what I thought. I want a set of goggles for Bluebrid Tahoe days and storm days. I don't do much night riding at Squaw or Boreal, so who cares about no-light
