Largest snowfall in recorded history for some parts of Central PA

Many locations reported between 18 and 34 inches of snow Friday night and Saturday across Central PA. The highest totals were along and south of the I-81 corridor. Highest totals peak around 34 inches for areas like York Springs, and Pine Grove Furnace. Several other towns reached into the low 30s for totals. Where records are kept at the Harrisburg International Airport, snow reached a depth of 30.2″ and now tops the list for the greatest snowstorm in recorded history. That beat out 25″ from back in February of 1983. The snow tally of over 30″ is almost as much as an average seasonal snowfall of 30.6″. An entire season’s worth of snow, in just one storm!
