Erie Sets New Two-Day State Snowfall Record; Snowiest December Ever, Erie Approaches Full-Season Average Number

December 27, 2017

The city of Erie’s current snowfall total of more than 60 inches has easily set a new two-day accumulation record for the state, surpassing the previous mark of 44 inches set in Morgantown, Pennsylvania in March, 1958.

A record 34 inches fell on Christmas Day, and an additional 26.5 inches was tallied on Tuesday.

Erie declared a snow emergency on Tuesday morning after travel warnings had been issued and PennDOT had proclaimed speed restrictions for the area’s Interstate highways.  Most officials were urging residents not to travel at all.

Bus routes in Erie were cancelled Tuesday, and were expected to be delayed on Wednesday.  rural routes were still cancelled on Wednesday.  The Millcreek Mall, located just south of the city, closed late Tuesday morning.

More than twenty Pennsylvania National Guard members have been deployed to the Erie area to aid police and emergency personnel, and to make sure critical workers can make their way to their jobs.

By the start of Wednesday morning, Erie’s December snowfall total had been measured at 99.5 inches, breaking the city’s previous record for the month by much more than thirty inches.  Erie’s total winter accumulation was within about an inch-and-a-half of reaching the city’s seasonal average for an entire winter.

The National Weather Service is predicting that Erie could see another two-to-four inches of snow by Wednesday evening, and possibly a total of five-to-ten additional inches by the weekend.
