Omaha - Extreme Daily Snowfall for Each Year





Here's a list of yearly records for the heaviest snowfalls and snowiest days in Omaha, Nebraska. The information easily answers questions such as: How much snow fell in a day during the biggest snowstorm of 2018? When was the last time Omaha got more than 10 inches of snow in a single day?

This page gives the highest daily snowfall of each year in Omaha and the date it occurred. If a date has a plus sign beside it that means the same amount of snow also fell on at least one other day earlier in the year.

These snowfall extremes were measured at Eppley Airfield and go back to 1948, but data are missing for most of 1995 to 2002. For the years with records, the most amount of snow to land in one day at Omaha is 18.3 inches (46.5 centimetres) on February 11, 1965.
