Snowfall Map of The Storm of January 12, 1996

The Blizzard of 1996 was followed by another snow event of some significance across portions of central Virginia. Amounts in association with this second storm were much less than the Blizzard of '96, ranging from less than an inch over interior portions of the southeast to 8" in portions of western Fluvanna county. The combination of the 2 snow storms brought nearly 3 feet of snow to extreme western portions of the Wakefield CWA in less than a week. This was the greatest snowfall experienced in the central portion of Virginia by a series of snowstorms since January 1966. Map courtesy of Barbara Watson - WCM NWSFO Sterling, VA
