Killer storm dumps six times more snowfall on Central Park than previous record.
16 Nov 2018 – The 6.4 inches (16.3 cm) of snow that fell on New York City (Central Park) yesterday eviscerated the previous record of one inch set on Nov 15, 1906.
To put this in perspective, keep in mind that average snowfall in Central Park for the entire month of December is only 4.8 inches. Also keep in mind that we’re still only halfway through November.
Other notable snowfall amounts:
- Newton, PA – 12.3″ (30 cm+)
- Worcester, MA – 8.2″ (22 cm +)
- Nashua, NH – 6.8″ (15 cm +)
- Mt Hope, NH – 18.3″ (45 cm +)
In addition to being responsible for at least 11 deaths and leaving hundreds of thousands without power, the snow caused chaos in several states including New Jersey, where students were forced to stay in school overnight, in Pennsylvania, where motorists were trapped in their cars for more than 12 hours
