2nd Largest Snowstorm in Green Bay History

Breaking Snowfall Records

The Green Bay National Weather Service has updated the snowfall total with this historic blizzard and we are now officially the 2nd largest snowstorm in history. 

The last time we saw a storm of this magnitude was over 130 years ago in 1888 when 29 inches of snow accumulated.

The snow storm began on Friday night with 2.5 inches of accumulation. Saturday saw a total accumulation of 11 inches.So far today, we have been 9.7 inches of snowfall. 

Daily snowfall records have been broken on the 13th and 14th. We are 0.3" from tying the 10.0 snowfall record set back in 1904. The current daily total is 9.7" of snow.

The all time record remains at 29 inches set back 130 years ago in 1888. The chance of us reaching this total remains slim at this time since the heavy band of snow has diminished but we are still expected to have light to moderate snow for the next 18 to 24 hours which will add minor accumulation.
