Check out this fascinating snowfall measurement ruler platform video Kirkwood recently added. On the same page as their always excellent snow cam:
One needs to select the play arrow bottom left. There is a speed slider at bottom right. The time for each frame is at upper left. Shows it started snowing about 2am and about a half inch accumulated on the platter but it melted back to nothing by late morning due to warm ground temps and air temp only near freezing. Then some snow showers late afternoon leaving wet blobs. This winter will be checking this out while at work during storms. Note this is probably in the same roped off area where they have a tall pole marked off in feet and will likely clean it off each day to make incremental daily tallies. A fine creative idea Kirkwood...nice!
