Wet February at Anchorage

February 2018

As is often the case, precipitation and snowfall vary significantly in short distances in the Anchorage area. At the Anchorage Airport, February was unusually wet and snowy. Total precipitation, mostly, but not entirely snow, totaled 2.32" (58.9mm), the fourth highest February total in the past 66 years. Snowfall totaled 26.0" (66.0cm), more than twice normal and enough to be the sixth snowiest February since 1953.
