Largest snowfall in Pennsylvania history

(STACKER) – Almost everyone who lives in snowy areas seems to have a legendary blizzard history: the blizzard of ’78, the storm of the century, any of the blizzards or bomb storms that have happened since. And according to experts, they’re historic snowstorms — the kind by which you measure all other snowy days become more regular.

Despite shorter, warmer winters due to climate change, snowstorms are expected to become more frequent and intense in many areas. Because warmer air contains more moisture, more snow is likely to fall when temperatures are just below freezing than when temperatures are well below the freezing 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to a 2022 study by Climate Central, warmer-than-average winter air affects nearly every region of the United States. Winter temperatures have prevailed across the country since 1981 risen above 1 degree Fahrenheit, creating the right conditions for intense snowfall. As of 2014, the number of snowstorms the US experienced was already four times larger than the mid-20th century.
