Good call. You definitely can make snow a bit above freezing, but you will not have it too long as it melts away fast.

actually, snow machines can make snow in above freezing (0deg C, or 32deg F)...

There are two ways. Either they add chemicals to the water that they put into the mist.

Remember evaporative cooling? When the water gets into a fine mist, some evaporates, hence supercooling the water, and it becomes snow... That is the basis for snow machines. The faster the air velocity, the better. Ever seen ski hill snow machines? They are like Jet engines, aimed into the air. LOTS of velocity, and an even spread of mist through that air means LOTS of snow.
