The “Blizzard of 2016” – some preliminary Mid-Atlantic snowfall reports (inches):

1)    BWI Airport, MD -    29.2 (RECORD)
2)    Philly Airport, PA -     22.4 (4th highest)
3)    Dulles Airport, VA -    29.3 (2nd highest)
4)    Central Park, NY -        26.8 (2nd highest)
5)    Harrisburg, PA -        34.0 (RECORD)
6)    Allentown, PA -        31.9 (RECORD)
7)    JFK Airport, NY -        30.5 (RECORD)
8)    LGA Airport, NY -        27.9 (RECORD)
9)    King of Prussia, PA -    26.1

Reagan National Airport (DCA) in Washington, D.C. has officially come in with a highly suspicious reading of 17.8 inches and it is being investigated as it looks like an underestimate compared to surrounding areas. This is not the first measurement problem at DCA.  Last year, the temperature sensor at DCA was replaced as it was found to have been reporting erroneously high readings for years.  By the way, 17.8 inches would make it the 4th biggest snowstorm ever at DCA.
