Best Answer

It depends on how much you have!! One shovelful of snow, for example, weighs less than the amount of snow on your driveway. I suspect what you are really asking is not how much snow weighs but how much it weighs per cubit foot or cubic yard. Weight per unit volume is called density. But even that is tricky with respect to snow. The density of snow varies greatly. Lightly packed powder weighs very little per cubic foot, whereas slushy, wet snow can weigh over 62 pounds per cubic foot -- about the density of water.

It depends on the density of snow, the higher the moisture content of the air, the heavier the snow will be. Think wet snow.

But usually for the "light fluffy stuff" its 5-7 pounds per cubic foot.

For example: You have a 20 foot long sidewalk, that's 3 feet wide. With 6 inches of snow fall its roughly 180 pounds.

As much as a piece of string!

"Six inches" only tells us one dimension.

To get a weight, we need three dimensions.

about 60 inches, or 5 feet of snow

The fluffiness of the snow can vary how deep it is compared to an inch of rain. On average, however, ten inches of snow is an inch of rain, so .04 inches of rain is similar to .4 inches of snow.

It can vary widely. 1 inch of water can produce 2 inches of extremely wet snow or as much as 30 inches of fluffy dry snow. A rule of thumb (and this is a very general rule) is that 1 inch of water is in 10 inches of the average snowfall. To answer your question, it may be about 1.2 inches of rain using this formula.

This will depend on how cold it is, but on average 10 inches of snow = 1 inch of rain, so 0.15 inches of rain = 1.5 inches of snow. It could be less than in inch of wet snow, or more than 2 inches of powder, however.

You would get about 1.2 inches of water for every foot of snow that melts.The average snow-to-water yield is 10 inches to 1 inch, but this varies considerably. Only 5 inches of "wet snow" will yield an inch of meltwater, but it takes 15 inches of dry powder.

The weight of 1 square inch of soil can be any positive number. It simply depends on how high the 1 square inch column of soil is.
