Your phone is very likely water damaged based on the incident and symptoms you mentioned. There's no typical symptom for a short other than non-standard behavior.
The indicators being white is likely due to your phone falling into snow and not water. Snow could easily have gotten into the phone and melted, while the battery compartment remained dry.
The only thing you can do is try to completely dry it out before putting the battery back in. The damage is done when power is on when it is wet so being impatient and testing it occasionally is a bad idea.
