Here's a list of yearly records for the heaviest snowfalls and snowiest days in Austin, Texas. 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 Austin got more than two inches of snow in a single day?

This page gives the highest daily snowfall of each year in Austin 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.
