Reporting Snow to the National Weather Service

To submit snowfall reports to the National Weather Service, please use the unlisted severe weather reporting number, or contact us via Facebook or Twitter.

When And What to Report

We are most interested in snow amounts during and after an event. Be sure to report your Storm Total Snowfall (minus any snow already on the ground from previous events) when sending a report. You can also report sleet and ice accumulations.

An event is defined as weather associated with the same low pressure or storm system, and may extend from a few hours to a few days. A break in precipitation of a day or more usually defines separate events. Other supplemental information that can be reported in addition to Storm Total Snowfall includes the following items.
  • 1" or more of snow per hour.
  • 1" or more of snow during the past 24 hours.
  • When first measuring 2", 4", or 6" of snow.
  • Snow depth.
  • Any freezing rain or freezing drizzle.
  • Any thunder or lightning associated with winter precipitation.
