There is a popular misconception that snow becomes heavier when it starts to melt, so many people take risks to remove snow from their roofs when the weather starts to get warmer, for fear that the roof will collapse. In fact, when snow starts to melt, its volume decreases as the ice crystals and meltwater move into the spaces between the crystals, which makes the density of wet, melting snow greater than that of freshly-fallen snow. This makes it feel heavier to shovel, but its mass does not increase. In fact, it decreases when meltwater runs off the roof, so the weight of snow on a roof actually decreases when it starts to melt.
