Heavy Snow The term 'Heavy Snow' as it applies to the area of the weather can be defined as ' This generally means… snowfall accumulating to 4' or more in depth in 12 hours or less; or snowfall accumulating to 6' or more in depth in 24 hours or less. In forecasts, snowfall amounts are expressed as a range of values, e.g., '8 to 12 inches.' However, in heavy snow situations where there is considerable uncertainty concerning the range of values, more appropriate phrases are used, such as '...up to 12 inches...' or alternatively '...8 inches or more...''.
