Enter the total amount of rain precipitation in inches and the temperature to calculate the equivalent amount of snow.

## Rain to Snow Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the amount of snow in inches from rain in inches.

S = R * 5 + T/16

- Where S is the amount of snow (inches)
- R is the amount of rain (inches)
- T is the temperature in F (if the temperature is less than 0, leave this blanks)

## Rain to Snow Conversion

Converting rain to snow is the process of calculating the amount of snow that would fall from a given amount of rain precipitation if it was cold enough outside.

## Rain to Snow Example

How to convert rain to snow?

**First, determine the expected amount of rain.**For this example we will say the total amount of precipitation is expected to be 2inches of rain.

**Next, determine a theoretical temperature.**We will say that in theory the temperature would be 30 F.

**Finally, calculate the snow.**We can calculate the amount of equivalent snow using the formula above so S = 2*(5+30/16) = 2 * (6.875) = 13.75″ of snow at that temperature.
