    4pm to 8am=16hrs
    2 feet=24inches
    24÷16= 1.5 inches per hour

    Since the snowfall started at 4 pm and stopped at 8 am.

    Total duration of snowfall = (4 pm to 4 am) +( 4 am to 8 am)

    = 12 hours + 4 hours

    = 16 hours.

    Length of snow = 2 feet

    Since, 1 feet = 12 inches

    2 feet = 24 inches.

    So, we have to find the rate of snowfall in inches per hour.

    Rate of snowfall in inches per hour =  \frac{24}{16}

    = 1.5 inches per hour.

    So, the rate of snowfall in inches per hour is 1.5
