Ansonia Holds The State 24 Hour Snowfall Record

A new 24-hour snowfall record was set for the state of Connecticut during the blizzard on Feb. 8-9. Ansonia will go down in the record books with 36 inches. This ruling was issued on Tuesday by a team of state climatologists and meteorologists. Although some towns reported greater snowfall amounts, the committee determined that the Ansonia observation was the most reliable, coming from a National Weather Service Cooperative site. This beats the previous record of 30 inches from Falls Village in 1941. You can read the full NWS report here.
