A “Climate Change Indicators: Snowfall” webpage published by the US Environmental Protection Agency states that warmer temperatures evaporate more water from lands and oceans, which in turn leads to higher precipitation rates and a higher frequency of storms.
“In general, a warmer climate causes more of this precipitation to fall in the form of rain instead of snow,” the EPA wrote.
“Some places, however, could see more snowfall if temperatures rise but still remain below the freezing point, or if storm tracks change.”
