All other topics about postprocessing model data (GrADS and other software), about other numerical weather prediction software (including WRF-NMM and WRF-ARW discussion unrelated to UEMS/WRF EMS), and general meteorology talk go in this forum.

I think the SNOD fields are the ones you should use for plotting the depth of accumulated snow.
SNOD_ON_SURFACE == total depth of snow
BUCKET_SNOD_ON_SURFACE == period change (includes melting).

Period accumulation of precipitation in snow form is probably BUCKET_ASNOW_ON_SURFACE which is measured in liquid terms (kg/m^2)
