Flagstaff – Almost 3 ft of snow in 24 hrs sets new record

Not just for February 21st, but for ANY day of the year in more than a century.

Thursday set the all-time daily record for snowfall in Flagstaff, Arizona, with 35.9 inches (91.2 cm) of snow. The previous record of 31 inches (78.7 cm) was set more than a century ago, on Dec. 30, 1915.


Thursday’s storm also shattered February’s all-time daily snowfall record of 24 inches set on Feb. 2, 1901

The storm unloaded feet of snow, creating blizzard conditions and shutting down travel over the mountains of Arizona and New Mexico.
