No Snow Record Broken in 2017-2018


No Snow Record Broken in 2017-2018

Realizing the last thing, any one wants to think about, as we close out summer, is winter weather. For sure lets enjoy the days counting up to Labor Day, then fall, leaves changing, and the sound of Union City Bears football under the lights. The National Weather Service (NWS) spends their summer calculating in detail the near record amount of snow the Erie area got last winter. As the aching backs, and broken snowblowers can testify, it was a really rough winter in Erie County.

A committee reviewed the data from Erie International Airport and surrounding snow observation sites and determined the original 24-hour and monthly snow totals from Erie International Airport are invalid and will not hold as state records. The decision was made because there was a large discrepancy between new snowfall and snow depth among several dates. Snow observers found it difficult to measure the snow due to drifting, and just the shear amount, that fell in short period of time, during several severe storms.

A new committee was then formed to determine what snowfall totals would be used for December 2017. They decided to use observations from a nearby NWS Cleveland snow spotter with many years of experience. During the first committee review, it indicated that 50.8 inches fell at the Erie International Airport during the 24 hour period of December 25th and 26th. But when new observers looked, the snow total dropped to 32.6, The same thing happened for the two observer totals in the month of December 2017, and for the total snow fall for the season. Initially 198.5 inches were totaled, and it was changed to 166.3 inches.
