Everyone expects snow to melt in warm temperatures, but how does it disappear when the temperature doesn't climb above freezing? The answer is sublimation. Water molecules around the freezing point of 32 degrees Fahrenheit are able to exist as a solid, liquid or gas. Water is able to go right from the solid (snow/ice) state to the gaseous state (vapor) with the help of energy from the sun.
Because of this, you can have freezing temperatures but still see snow amounts slowly vanishing throughout the day.
