New Snowfall Totals - Bug or user error?
Hi - Using Windy to check new snowfall totals (not total snow) for the central WA USA Cascade mountains. Windy currently lists a new snow total of >27", though less than 12" of new snow has fallen in the past 7 days. Is this a bug or user error? Is this real time data? What time-frame is it accumulating data for? Thanks.
New snow is the total accumulation of snow in the FOLLOWING days. You seem to be comparing the New snow figures predicted for the next few days with last week’s snowfalls. It’s not clear.
Note that new snow accumulation does not take into account the natural compaction of the snow layer and possible melting. This means that the snow depth at the end will be less than the total amount of snowfall.
