This paper assesses the attenuation through various intensities of snowfall experimentally at 300 GHz, and is characterized by measuring the ratio of the received power from the target through the snow precipitation and through the same path with no precipitation. Higher attenuation is measured at higher snowfall rate. Snow events are categorized as "dry snow" and "wet snow". The comparison between the measured attenuation through wet and dry snowfall shows larger attenuation is expected through wet snowfall compared to the same snowfall rate of dry snow. This study is fundamentally important to investigate the effect of adverse weather condition on Low- THz waves and to assess their feasibility for outdoor applications.
