Snowstorm Shatters New York City, Philadelphia Records

Posted By on January 27, 2011

Records are made to be broken,…..but the hope is (was) ‘not in our lifetime’.

New York City and Philadelphia are included in the mid-Atlantic storm that broke daily snowfall records on Wednesday. New York City set a new record for January,  the snowiest January in history.

With the storm grounding out, final snow tallies exceed a foot throughout the corridor from Philadelphia to New York City.

The recent storm total snowfall in New York City was 19.0 inches. The 12.3 inches that fell alone on Wednesday broke the day’s long-standing snowfall record of 9 inches from 1871.

The storm also pushed the month’s snow total to 36.0 inches in New York City and makes this January the snowiest on record, bypassing January 1925 and its 27.4 inches.
