Providence - Extreme Daily Snowfall for Each Year





Here's a list of yearly records for the heaviest snowfalls and snowiest days in Providence, Rhode Island. The information easily answers questions such as: How much snow fell in a day during the biggest snowstorm of 2017? When was the last time Providence got more than a foot of snow in a single day?

This page gives the highest daily snowfall of each year in Providence 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 T.F. Green Airport, located six miles south of Providence and go back to 1948 with a few years missing data. Since then, the most amount of snow to land in one day at Providence is 18.3 inches (46.5 centimetres) on February 4, 1961.
