I didn’t know that was possible or if the liquid is water. But if it is, here’s how I’d do it.
Put the globe in the refrigerator for a few hours to cool it down.
Find a pot deep enough to totally immerse the globe and fill it with hot water. (not boiling) Put the globe in the hot water and look for bubbles as the air inside heats and expands. Move the globe around until you find the best spot where you get the most air coming out. Keep the globe in that position and wait until the bubbles stop.
Now get a pot the same size and fill it with ice cold water. Put the globe in and let it cool down. As it cools it will draw in water.
Repeat as necessary. This method will never get out all the air out but it will get close.

Some globes use glycerin with water. If yours does, the movement of the particles will appear slower than through water.

If you replace the missing liquid with water, you may see the snow move faster, although everything else should be fine.
