IMO there is some use to AS tires, its when you temps are 30-40s and no snow. In this case good AS tires would probably be better fit then dedicated snow tires due to more aggressive performance tread. Some winter tires dont have winter tire tread, those are good too for minimal to no snow conditions.
I'll be switching to winter tires soon too, I am just not a fan of driving on winter tires in 50s
