Snow that has partially melted, but hasn't completely turned into water yet, is called "slush".
"Slush" is different from "sleet", which is a mixture of snow and rain that falls from the sky. "Slush" is only what results after the snow has fallen and started to melt.
Use the phrase "turn to slush" to describe snow becoming slush:
It's supposed to get up to 50 degrees today, so most of the snow on the roads will just turn to slush.
"At this point" means "now". Use it when something was different before, or when you expect it to change soon:
I'll take any job I can get at this point. I've been out of work for over eight months.
Almost everything has been taken care of at this point.
I'm not interested in selling it at this point. I'll let you know if I change my mind.
