The attraction of dissimilar materials (e.g., snow and pavement). New, dry snow falling on cold, dry pavement will not adhere (bond) strongly. As the temperature rises above about 20º F (-7º C), the amount of liquid surrounding the snow grains increases. This increases the adhesion of the snow to pavement because of the attraction water has for contact surfaces.#WeatherTerms
