Spokane, WA broke several snow records over the weekend. A Tweet from the National Weather Service stated that Spokane recorded 1.9 inches of snow on Saturday, a new daily and monthly record, besting the previous September record of 1.4-inches in 1926.
“According to the records, as far back as the records go, this is the earliest snowfall ever, since they’ve been keeping records in the 1880s. It is highly unusual to have this intense of a storm so early, in fact its unusual to have this intense of a storm at any time,” a weather spokesman said.
It was the first measurable snow in September since 1926, almost a century ago.
It was the first measurable snowfall recorded on Sept. 28 since record-keeping began in 1881.
The area also broke a September temperature record on Sunday, with a high of only 38 degrees at the airport. This smashed the “cold maximum temperature” record of 50 degrees set in 1959.
