Snow Report: Christmas Eve 2009

The Christmas Eve snow of 2009 is one for the record books.

It was the heaviest snow on record for the 24th of December in Texoma (discussion continues below map).
Some amounts not shown on the map include:
4” in Whitesboro (Grayson County)
9” at Moss Lake (Cooke County)
3” at DFW (Christmas Eve record)
14.1” in Oklahoma City (Christmas Eve record)
The OKC record is not only a daily record but also a new 24-hour snowfall milestone. It also exceeds the all-time single snowstorm record (12.1” in Jan. 1988) since the beginning of record keeping there in 1890.
Along with snow came blizzard conditions with winds gusting 40-50mph much of the day. Drifts of more than two feet were reported over western Texoma.
Quite an amazing storm.
Stay warm!

    I reported Ardmore snowfall to the NWS OKC at 4 to 6 inches. You have the same on your map. I guess we got it right despite the drifting!
