Muskegon, MI shatters old snowfall record

More than two-and-a-half inches per hour.

On Saturday, the Muskegon County Airport recorded 14.9 inches of snow, shattering the old record of 6.9″ set 50 years ago in 1962.

Hey Muskegon, how’s that global warmin’ workin’ for ya?

Between about 7:00 P.M. and midnight Saturday, 13 inches piled up for an amazing rate of more than two-and-a-half inches per hour.

Before Saturday, Muskegon had only seen 13.1″ of snow for the season, meaning that the city doubled its snowfall for the season in about six hours.

Remember when Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, told us that within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”?

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” said Viner.

  1. Next year’s snow totals will be in the inches rather then feet for Muskegon. In five years, sadly big winter storms will be heavy downpours of rain so hobbies such as snowmobiling will be a thing of the past. -Dr. Phil Webstein
