Poor insulation

When the snow melts on your roof in patches after a good snowfall it usually represents poor insulation in the attic. The heat from your home is escaping and melting the snow off of your roof. If its cold or below freezing out you’ll find that ice may form on your gutter followed by icicles. The remedy is either add a layer of insulation to what is existing or have an energy auditor come and out and follow what recommendations they give.
