February 2019 snowfall is second-highest on record for Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. — The National Weather Service said that, as of midnight Thursday, this February was officially the second snowiest on record for Spokane.
The NWS counted an unofficial total of 29.8 inches of snow for the month, surpassing February 1975’s snowfall by just more than an inch but still falling plenty short of the 1893 February record of 39.6 inches.
It’s official (technically it will be at midnight), that Spokanites have earned a silver medal �for the 2nd snowiest February on record. We can safely say there’s no chance of gold as we’ve run out of days to get another 9.8″ of snow. #silvermedalisntbad #wawx pic.twitter.com/o5c4AhV1zM
