What is the largest snowfall ever recorded?
Snow is a type of precipitation that occurs when the atmosphere cools to freezing temperatures (below 32 degrees Fahrenheit) and moisture is in the air. These conditions will form ice crystals, which will coalesce into snowflakes. If the ground temperature is also below freezing, the snowflakes will stay on the ground.
Answer and Explanation:
Many areas throughout the world have had large snowfalls, but the largest recorded worldwide snowfall occurred near Mount Baker Lodge in the Washington Cascades. During the 1998-1999 season, the snowfall measured 1,140 inches (95 feet).
