Average Yearly Snowfall by American State

Share |

The tables below give yearly averages for snowfall at each state in the United States.

The numbers are for the total amount of snow and for how many days it snows at least 0.1 inches (0.25 centimetres). The snowfall totals are annual averages based on weather data collected from 1981 to 2010.

Across many of the states, the amount of snow that normally falls varies widely. So meaningful state-wide averages for snowfall aren't available. Instead the tables here list a place for each state that represents the state's annual snowfall.
