This season’s storms are packing a punch, Even in Dallas! From the NWS in Dallas, Texas:
RECORD 24-HOUR SNOW FOR FEBRUARY SET AT DALLAS FORT WORTH
DALLAS FORT WORTH AIRPORT RECORDED 11.2 INCHES OF SNOW FOR FEBRUARY 11…2010. THIS BREAKS THE GREATEST CALENDAR DAY SNOW ON RECORD. THE OLD RECORD WAS 7.8 INCHES SET ON JANUARY 15…1964 AND JANUARY 14…1917.
THE GREATEST ALL-TIME 24 HOUR SNOWFALL RECORD WAS ALSO BROKEN FROM 4 AM THURSDAY TO 4 AM FRIDAY. THE NEW RECORD IS 12.5 INCHES. THE OLD RECORD WAS 12.1 INCHES SET JANUARY 15 THROUGH JANUARY 16…1964.
While many in the Mid-Atlantic are sick of the snow, I’ll bet Texans are loving this! My sister lives there and says it’s beautiful and they are having a great time playing in it.
This strong southern storm will spare the DC-Baltimore-Philly snow zone but will spread snow to Atlanta and the Carolinas today, potentially brushing Richmond with light snow tonight and Saturday morning.
