Weather Insider: Snowfall trends across the nation

A new report from Climate Central has looked into trends in annual snowfall between 1970 and 2023. Of the more than 2,000 stations analyzed, 64% are seeing less snowfall now as compared to the early 70s. Many of these stations are more southern as warmer temperatures push snow to the north. The Northeast has also seen an increase in rain as opposed to snow.

Roughly one-third of all the stations analyzed are experiencing more snowfall. Many of these locations are in the northern tier of the country.

The western US has been identified in multiple studies to be a global hotspot for snow drought and decreasing snowpack in a warming world.
