Current Top 25 Snowiest US Cities

  • 12/19/14  2:00 PM – ALL OF THE TOP 25 CITIES WERE UPDATED!

    Click Here for last seasons results, the 2013 – 2014 Snow Season Totals

    NOTE – We are still missing some of the US cities over 100,000 and we will add them as we find them..

    The first number is the current spot the city is on the snow mountain. The second number is where the city was at the end of the last update. We will be switching it to how the city started this season and then the current updated place as the cities receive snowfall totals.

    This is where the Top Twenty Five Snowiest US Cities leading so far in the new Golden Snow Globe Contest will be updated. Does your city have what it takes to stay in the top 25. All of the cities will be on a rolling system with only the top ten snowiest cities here on the main page. That meaning that if your city is number 25 and another city passes yours, poof, your city is gone from this section. Can your city stay in the top twenty five is the question?  Our guess is that there will be some bouncing around especially at the beginning of the 2014 – 2015 snow season. Good Luck to All the Golden Snow Globe Cities.

    • Hi John, According to the National Weather Service the list should be correct as of about 24 hours ago. Here is a link you can check out that will show you what Buffalo has so far this season. Just click go and you will get a pop up with the current snow stats… http://www.nws.noaa.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=buf Keep in mind that Buffalo itself did pick up quite a bit of snow but nothing compared to the towns that you were seeing on TV and on the internet.

  1. It’s great to see South Bend representing Indiana in this snow race. Great to have them back in the running, being that I live here. It’s been quite an interesting start to the season. Almost every single inch that has fallen in South Bend has been lake effect. All of the system snow has been to the south and north of us. Maybe, just maybe, one of the next storms will take a more lower Great Lake approach. :)

  2. The last time Buffalo got an epic lake event was in the 2000- 2001 season, and ended the season with 158.7 inches(Buffalo’s second snowiest year). This was actually measured in the airport, and not South of the city. Same year, the Cuse came from behind and topped out at 191.9. Someone in Buffalo stole the Golden Snowball award that year! LMAO!

      • I live 7 miles south of airport and are considered part of Buffalo We had 89 inches here. You need to rethink the stat gathering, to have a more factual total for these cities.

    • Unfortunately Glenn Syracuse lost a couple of inches in the last few updates :( Don’t know if The National Weather Service made a mistake adding the stats or what the problem was. They are only at 8.7 inches now instead of the 11.0 inches that was showing a couple of days ago…

  3. Nobody has anything to say about Grand Rapids, Mi? The last time the downtown area ofGrand Rapids had over 28 inches of snow in November was in the 1890′s. Most snow on record for this month in history… Now that’s a snowy November for GR! Curious to see what the rest of 2015 will bring in inches.

    • Hey Matt, I have been trying to blog about Grand Rapids and tried to get a hold of a couple of sites from there. Thanks for sharing that info and I’ll post about it. Congrats on being in first place (For Now) ;) I’m impressed that you guys are almost 25 inches over your average to date so far this season. I think you’re right, it will be interesting to see what the rest of the season has in store for us…

    • Hi Sue, here is what I wrote on another comment with the same question.

      most of the snow was hitting the towns to the south and east of Buffalo and wasn’t hitting the Buffalo airport where they measure the snow. I think this is one time that the people that it’s missing, even snow lovers are probably happy that it is missing them. Pretty crazy where it was snowing…

      • and yet I thought the numbers were too HIGH for the airport measurement. I live just slightly north of there and got a fraction of the airport???

      • It’s crazy here now. And now they are talking about flooding cause it started to rain. 13 people died already. One guy was stuck in his car and not found for days :(

      • Hi Jill, yeah not a good situation from what I have seen and pretty sad about the deaths. Let’s hope the flooding does because disastrous and that all of the roofs hold up. Still have a bad feeling about some of the people that have may not have been checked on yet also :( Stay safe!
