How is Snow measured by the precipitation measurement?

I have been working on a project that will be utilizing the Precipitation field to gather information about daily precipitation. My question is, what happens when it snows? Does the precipitation field register it as inches of Snow, or does it translate the snowfall totals into a rainfall total? Obviously, 1" of snow is different than 1" of rain.

Thanks for the assistance and answer.
