German term or phrase: aper
For a snow report:

"teilw. aper" & "aper"

Can it mean "aperiodic", i.e. irregular?
Or does it mean there’s partially "no snow"?
Thank you!
Beth
no snow
Explanation:
Well, I certainly would not describe our lawn as "aper" right now - it snowed 4" overnight...

aper (südd., schweiz., österr. für schneefrei); -e Wiesenaper
aper schneefrei
(c) Dudenverlag

I'd suggest using "no snow"
