The cowl has vents on either end of it that drain the water. As long as your snorkel end going into the cowl box is setup correctly, there's nothing to worry about. I've taken my truck into crap 95% of the members on this board wouldn't even consider and that snorkel never let a drop of water into my intake box.
Just the water breaks over the hood...not driving through water thats up to my hood. I would probably get stuck in that.
During one of the past rainstorms I went out to a campsite by okechobee and we were running down a couple trails with this other jeep (just me and him) and he offered any help to pull me out if I needed it, so I just took it to the max. I burried her several times, and I broke water over the hood, it was awesome, but my filter got wet...I dunno, I want to do something like this, but I don't want to drill into my cowl. I'd almost rather have it a different way, but there isn't many choices!!!
