It took a while to verify, but an observation made on February 7, 2010 has been determined to take the daily snow depth record in the state of Delaware.
Greenwood, Delaware, located in northwest Sussex County, is the new home for the daily snow depth record in the Liberty and Independence State. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and its State Climate Extremes Committee ruled that the observation measured at the CoCoRaHS station in Greenwood is accurate, making a new daily snow depth record for the state.
The record breaking measurement was 28″ of snow.
CoCoRaHS is an acronym for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.
