I believe that the ground snow was set at 25 psf at least in the Chicago area.
Interesting to note though that in this code, by it’s own definition of live load Sectionsnow was considered a live load, different than what we view it now – it’s own separate load classification. W58.1 are provisions for unbalanced loading in the version. Here are the snow portions of Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.
I think that for the Chicago area the ground snow load was listed at 20psf 2 What were the unbalanced snow provisions for a hip roof?

They don’t change their building codes very often but they generate them by themselves. If you are working on a building designed under the review of the Chicago Building Department they have there own codes which are not derivative from any other code.

Is there any way you could forward me 1 how flat roof snow load was determined? The UBC, although not used in the Chicago area, mentions the use a58.1 unbalanced loading for snow loads and roof live loads. I am trying to find out how flat roof snow loads were determined and what provisions were in place if any to account for unbalanced snow loading.

You will need to find a library which has older Code books available. I cannot find any copies of this old code so any help would be appreciated. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. I also noted in the asni that there is an exception to the alternate span loading requirement that may or may not apply in Chicago – “Alternate span loading need not be considered where the uniform roof live load is 20 psf or more and the provisions of Section c are met.
