GREENSBORO, N.C. — VERIFY QUESTION

The 2018-2019 winter has been anything but quiet so far, particularly with the 12-inch snowfall in December.

Good Morning Show viewer Ronnie Hughes asked, specifically: when was the last time the Triad received 20 or more inches of snow?

VERIFY SOURCE

To VERIFY, we consulted Good Morning Show meteorologist Eric Chilton.

VERIFY PROCESS

Chilton pulled weather data from the past century. He verified there never has been a 20-inch snowfall in the Triad, at least not in a single day.

The biggest single-day snows on record are:

  1. 14.3" - December 17, 1930
  2. 12" - December 9, 2018
  3. 11.1" - March 9, 1960
  4. 10.7" - March 1, 1969
  5. 10.2" - January 22, 1987

The biggest snow totals per season on record are:

  1. 32.5" - 1926-1927
  2. 31.7" - 1959-1960
  3. 24.6" - 1961-1962
  4. 23.5" - 1935-1936
  5. 23.4" - 1986-1987

VERIFY CONCLUSION

The Triad has yet to experience a 20-inch single-day snowfall, though we have had several season snow totals of 20 or more inches.
