Flying Through Snow

Source: www.pilotworkshop.com/tips/flying-through-snow, Featuring Scott Dennstaedt

Subscriber question:

"Is it safe to fly through snow?" - Tim C.

Scott:

"In most cases, snow falling below the base of a cloud deck is not an icing threat. Snow tends to just blow around the surfaces and does not adhere to the airframe. Flying through heavy snow at slightly warmer temperatures can cause a blockage of the induction system on some aircraft. So you must be prepared to use an alternate air source.
