Reference: Snowfall Amounts

Having done this exact search myself, I offer to you herzogbr.net’s “Reference Question of the Week” for this week, which is to find actual snowfall amounts on two recent dates for one location. If someone asks you this question, or you want to know yourself, and the dates fall within the last month, reading his report might save you several hours of hunting down the data.

Also potentially useful is the National Climatic Data Center’s text listings of snowfalls (amount of snow that fell that day/night) and snowdepths (amount of snow laying on the ground) for every county in the U.S., and for multiple towns in many counties, listed by month of the year for the past 2.5 years. The snowfall listing files are dlysnfl.txt files; the snowdepth listings are dlysndpth.txt files.
