The Snow Making 'Fan Gun' is a crude approximation based on Wet Bulb temperature as to whether various snow making system may have been able to make snow at that point in time at similar altitude to the AWS. Where Wetbulb Temperature is not available, the fan gun icon is based solely on air temperature, under almost all circumstances the wet bulb temperature will be colder than the air temperature.
