Wednesday’s snow sets the January 25 snowfall record

FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) — Wednesday’s winter storm brought heavy snow to northeastern Indiana and northwestern Ohio. Several inches of snow fell, and Fort Wayne set a new daily record for maximum snowfall on January 25.

Fort Wayne International Airport saw 6.1 inches of snow, dwarfing the Jan. 25 daily record of 5.4 inches set during the 1978 blizzard. Note that this figure is subject to change should the airport see more snow before midnight.

The snow we picked up helps bring our total January snowfall to 9.2 inches, which is now slightly above what we should be getting for the month. Prior to Sunday’s snow, we had only seen 0.1 inches of snow this month, so this is quite a turnaround. Our total of 16.2 inches for the snow year is still below average, but a lot closer to average than it was.


Before Wednesday, the lack of snowfall was the big weather story. For some perspectives, January 1 through January 24 both this year and last year underperformed in terms of January snowfall.


For meteorological winter, the 5.9 inches of snow from December 1 to January 24 would have ranked as the fourth-lowest snowy winter on record, and we were 10 inches below our winter average.


We will try to add more snow in the coming days and weeks. Visit our WANE 15 forecast page for the latest information. We hope you enjoyed the snow! Wednesday’s snow sets the January 25 snowfall record
