RAIN TO SNOW CONVERSIONS

Have you ever watched rain pouring down on a cold winter day and said to yourself "This would be nice if all of this were falling as snow!" Well if you get one inch of rain, that doesn't mean that if it were falling as snow, you would have one inch of snow. There is a conversion to determine "___ amount of rain equals ___ amount of snow". This conversion is not always the same, because air temperature plays a big role in this as well. When the air is near freezing, there is a lot of water content to the snow and 10 inches of snow could melt down to one inch of rain. However, if the air is very cold, and you have a powdery snow, it may take as much as 25 or more inches of snow to melt down to one inch of rain. Below is the conversions that you would use based upon the temperature. These conversions are all based on "____inches of snow melts down to one inch of rain."
