CHICOPEE, Mass. ( – After a light snow accumulation overnight, most of the day it has been rain that has fallen from the sky. How much snow would we have received without the changeover to rain?

There is a simple conversion we can use to convert rain amounts to snow. Typically, you multiply the rainfall amount by 10 to get the snowfall amount. One inch of rain, then, would be roughly equivalent to 10 inches of snow.

You are watching: How many inches of snow is 1 inch of rain

However, for a wetter, stickier snow that falls when temperatures aren’t that could, you could get less snow for the same amount of rain. So one inch of rain may be more equivalent to seven inches of sticky, wet snow.

If the snow is dry and fluffy, you could get more snow. One inch of rain could equal 15” of snow or more. Two inches of rain would mean about 30” of snow where it is very dry, light, and fluffy.
