Snowfall Totals: Who In Westchester Got The Most?

Winter finally arrived, and it certainly made its presence known.

Well, that escalated quickly. A winter storm that meteorologists predicted would drop between 5 and 9 inches as late as Friday, ended up hanging around longer than expected and unleashed more than 20 inches of snow Saturday in some areas of Westchester. 

So who had it the worst? Here are the totals taken Sunday morning, from the National Weather Service. 

• Port Chester: 24.5 inches
• Larchmont: 24 inches
• Dobbs Ferry: 20.6 inches
• Yonkers: 20.5 inches
• Eastchester: 19.2 inches
• Scarsdale: 18.6 inches
• Hastings: 15 inches
• Armonk: 14.2 inches
• White Plains: 13 inches
• Harrison: 13 inches

That is a lot of snow. But even Port Chester’s totals are nowhere near the levels seen around New York City. Jackson Heights in Queens had the most snow in the New York Metropolitan area, coming in at a whopping 34 inches measured Sunday morning. As reported by the New York Times, the storm missed a one-day total snowfall record in New York City by just a tenth of an inch.

But as the chart in the tweet above shows, Westchester and most surrounding areas were at least spared the 30-plus inches of snow seen in parts of West Virginia and Maryland (look for the furious, dark red on the map.) The overall impact along the East Coast has been devastating. There have been more than 29 deaths related to the storm, thousands of homes left without power, and flooding in coastal areas. 

If you still need to shovel yourself out, here are some tips from the National Safety Council on how to do it safely. We also have a few tips on driving safely in winter conditions.
