I think you would be fine. I don't live where snow/slush is a factor though. They make a cover for the 6637 filter you could put on for piece of mind. It is probably more for dirt protection though.
Are you concerned with getting snow/water in your filter?

I'm in the process of making a blocker out of 24ga galvanized. To block out some of the engine heat and slush/water mud Out of my filter. I'll let you know how I make out.
