Greatest Single-Day Snowfall Record - February 11, 1999. Tahtsa
Lake, BC, received 145 cm of snow, a new Canadian single-day
snowfall record, but well below the world's record of 192 cm at Silver
Lake, Colorado on April 15, 1921


Wholly Crap, Batman that's.....

145cm=57 inches
192cm=75 inches

It's happened only twice, but there's been lots in the 20" range. Keep in mind, that's all lake snow. Lake snow can dump huge massive amounts of snow in a very short period of time in a small area, only for there to be sunshine and grass two miles up the road.

The 24 hour record for snowfall in the entire state of New Jersey was Elizabeth, NY at 33" - back in 1899. I think Nyan Cat might be a bit confused over actual recorded 24 hour snowfall versus snow that falls during the entire beginning to end of a storm over several days.

The BC coast including Vancouver get "Ocean" snow. In my 65
year in Vancouver I think the largest single snow event was about 4
years ago. We had one dump in North Delta (a Vancouver suburb) of
about 16". That followed 2 snow falls in the proceeding days of about
12" each. I measured the snow on Dec 24th that year of 39" (non
drift) in an open part of my front yard.

We get very heavy wet snow here. We rarely see any "powder" snow
as it usually doesn't get cold enough.

we got about 80 cm of snowfall a couple of years ago in one day during "Snowmageddon" (even more if you count the couple of days afterwards where it kept falling, albeit at a slower rate)...big dumpings of snow aren't that uncommon here though as we are at the bottom of the snowbelt region.

Yeah, snowbelt regions will always have higher records for 24 hour snowfall than other areas.
