Remarks for the Time Period
   0      0015 hrs.   T  0.01  35.2  A period of sleet started at 0015.
   1      0100 hrs.   0.1  0.01  33.4   Temperature still above freezing and some sleet melted as it fell but a depth measured on the snowboard was 0.1 inches.
   2      0300 hrs.    0.1  0.3  33.7   Not much precipitation between 0100 and 0300 except light sleet. Snow started at around 0300. The rate was so light this past hour it was melting as it fell and not accumulating.
   3      0500 hrs.    0.3   0.04  32.5  Not much melting now and there is about 0.1 inches of sleet and 0.2 inches of snow on the snow board.
   4      0600 hrs.    0.4    32.5   Heater on precipitation gauge is not on thus no liquid amount to report this hour.
   5      0700 hrs.    1.1  0.10   31.3   Temperature below freezing now
   6      0800 hrs.   2.0  0.14  31.0  Large aggregates or fluffy assemblages of many crystals now leaves an uneven snow surface and more air spaces in the snow and increases the snow to water ratio.
   7      0900 hrs.   2.0  0.18  31.0  Snow end shortly after the 0800 observation. The maximum snow depth was 2.0 inches on the snow board. The frozen precipitation in the rain gauges was melted and the 0.18 inches is the corrected amount since midnight. The heater on the tripping bucket gauge often evaporates some of the liquid.
   8      0925 hrs.   2.0  ---  30.9  One last observation--- A core sample was taken and 0.12 inches of liquid was found in the 2.0 inches of snow. Thus the snow to liquid equivalent ratio was 16.6 to one.
