Snowfall Directly from WRFv3.7+ w/ARW Core

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to find methods for obtaining snowfall (the accumulated "frozen stuff" on the ground) directly from WRF.

Excluding AFWA's ptype diagnostic and ignoring SNOWH (snow depth), are there any other utilities or methods to obtain snowfall from WRF besides post-processing (NCL, Python, etc...)?

I believe UEMS/WRF also provides snowfall too, however, I'm not sure if it's calculated for modeled time steps though.

AFWA: https://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/users/doc ... in_WRF.pdf
UEMS/WRF: http://strc.comet.ucar.edu/software/uem ... endixD.pdf

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated!
