Snowfall? Can We Break the Record?

The meteorologists are predicting that a record snowfall is on the way (see this article if you haven’t heard:Major Winter Storm Heading Towards Chicago). The question is if we actually believe them or not. As we watch the snow fall, I thought it would be cool to know about past record snow falls, so I visited the National Weather Service: History of 10 inch or greater Snow storms in Chicago and came up with these records:

  1. 23.0 inches Jan 26-27, 1967
  2. 21.6 inches Jan 1-3, 1999
  3. 19.2 inches Mar 25-26, 1930
  4. 18.8 inches Jan 13-14, 1979
  5. 16.2 inches Mar 7-8, 1931
  6. 15.0 inches Dec 17-20, 1929
  7. 14.9 inches Jan 30, 1939
  8. 14.9 inches Jan 6-7, 1918
  9. 14.3 inches Mar 25-26, 1970
  10. 14.0 inches Jan 18-20, 1886

Now, get our the rulers and let’s see how the snow falls.
