A 12" base of snow on a 33' roof = 4,752lbs. This is for average snow, no ice. The calculation below is used by local responders in snow load issues to calculate snow load on buildings (like schools).
(12”)(1.50 lbs/sq ft) = 18 lbs/ sq ft
Just to throw a wrench in it, ice is 5.2 lbs/ sq ft per inch of thickness.....
The new roof was standard on Jayflight and Eagles starting in 2013.
