According to the National Weather Service, to measure snow, at the beginning of each snowfall/freezing season, remove the funnel and inner measuring tube of the eight-inch manual rain gauge to expose the 8-inch diameter overflow can so that it can more accurately catch frozen precipitation.
Put your snowboard(s) out and mark their location with a flag or some other indicator so they can be found after a new snowfall. They should be located in the vicinity of your station in an open location.
Observers should determine three values when reporting solid precipitation. They are:
Snowfall: Measure and record the snowfall (snow, ice pellets ) since the previous snowfall observation (24 hours).
Snow Depth: Determine the depth of the new and old snow remaining on the ground at observation time.
Water Equivalent of Snow: Water equivalent of melted snow collected in the gauge since the last observation.
