    Not really.. for some reason known only to God and weathermen it was about 35F when it started snowing. And now here it is 2210 or 10:10 pm for American civilians and it's still about 31F..just a tad nippy.:) We've only got about 3 inches so far. but it was snowing so hard the first 10 minutes you could not see a 100 feet in front of yourself.

    If the air aloft is cold enough, it will start out up there as snow, and at 35 degrees on the surface, if the cold air mass is relatively low to the ground, it will not melt before hitting the ground...and if it is coming down heavy enough, it will begin to accumulate.

    In addition, that heavy snow itself, in conjunction with the cold air mass moving in, will help reduce the temperature of the suface air to at or below freezing.

    And, presto! you have snow coming down and sticking at above freezing temperatures. I have seen it do this here in Idaho on occassion at temperatures as warm as 39 degrees.

    Well it's still snowing lightly.. we have a total of 3-4 inches of snow in our area depending on where you live. I'd say we are closer to 4 where I live. I'm heading out to brush the new fallen snow off the car (Oh joy!) 'cause my wife has to go to work..

    When I was a kid growing in Cincinnati the heaviest snow I remember occurred when the temperature was about 33-35 degrees.
