The Snowiest Cities
Snow just keeps coming all over America. From Denver to Duluth, Buffalo to Billings, The Daily Beast ranks the cities that take the worst winter poundings each year.
Which cities, year after year, are actually America's snowiest? To find out, The Daily Beast examined the 1980-2009 monthly snowfall data for cities of more than 50,000 people from the National Climatic Data Center to arrive at a yearly average. While some cities were missing snowfall records for some years (supplementary weather information was culled from the Farmer’s Almanac database), the breadth of the data provides a clear snapshot of where residents endure the most snow year in, year out.
There were plenty of surprises, including an Arizona city in the top five. But New York state reigns as the clear-cut king of snow, holding the top three spots.
