I am far from an expert, but I was wondering if this snow cover will actually hasten ice-out?

The water temperature has risen to 38 and is staying there (for now). With the coat of snow above acting as insulation, the ice won't be directly exposed to the cold night temps, and will continually be eaten away from below by the relatively warm water. Yes?
