Snowfall Records - National Snowfall and Snow Depth Extremes

By December 10, 2008

Follow me on:

Snow records can be broken every year, but some snow depth records haven't been broken in a long time. For instance, the greatest daily snow depth record was 293 inches of snow. The state with this record is NOT Alaska (which holds many of the other records). Can you guess the location with the greatest snowfall record?

Actually, 293″ in 1 day would be physically impossible; the atmosphere can’t hold that much moisture at below-freezing temperatures. If you read the records carefully, that’s the record amount on the ground at one time. The daily record of 63″ is still impressive, though.
