NOAA 200yrs

March 7-8, 2008 Snowstorm

contour map of snowfall from March 7-8, 2008

Snowfall amounts ranged from as little as 5 inches west of Toledo to over 20 inches in parts of Cuyahoga, Geuaga, Ashtabula and Erie (PA) counties. In general, north-central and northeast Ohio received over 15 inches of snow with the highest amounts along the I-71 corridor eastward and along the lakeshore from Cleveland through Erie County PA into western New York. North winds of 20 to 30 mph with higher gusts created drifts of 3 feet or more. The snow began just before noon Friday. By Saturday morning the snow was already 6 to 12 inches deep. Moderate to heavy snow continued through Saturday afternoon with blizzard conditions at times, finally winding down from west to east during the evening hours.

This snowstorm has put Youngstown over the edge with a record seasonal snowfall (as of Sunday, March 9) of 94.3 inches. This breaks the previous record of 90.2 inches set during the 2006-2007 season.

Below is a list of snowfall tallies the NWS Cleveland office received from their dedicated volunteer snow observers.
