Snow Covering Aux Lights (KC Apollos)

I figure there's probably not much I can do about this, but are there any tips/tricks to keeping these lights clear of snow? They got covered while I was driving and then just glowed instead of making a beam.

I've seen people spray their satellite dish with cooking spray to help the snow slide off. Might work for the lights?

WD-40 might do the trick also

I use Rain-X. It works pretty good. If they are halogen bulbs, they should get hot enough to melt the snow but it may take some time depending on how thick it is.

They throw enough heat that you'll see the snow steaming one you put them on.
