Does snow on the ground affect ratings?

And if so, which way will the ratings go?
For comparison, I'm using the the Ice Bowl I've run.
The snow was probably 6-8" deeper this year compared to 2014.
The layouts played were identical.

The amount of snow on the ground by itself should have minimal impact compared with other factors like wind, temperature, is it snowing during the round, and Official vs Unofficial ratings. You'e currently showing a 2.5% rating difference between the two events.

Thanks Chuck. I couldn't remember if there was a difference last year between prelim and final ratings.

The way I understand it, ratings are generated based on the raw scores of propagators (the players with their rating in bold type on the PDGA page). One would assume scores are higher with adverse conditions.
