NEW: Worcester Ranked 10th Snowiest City in US
Wednesday, February 05, 2014
Worcester has been ranked by The Weather Channel as the 10th snowiest major city, with a whopping yearly total of 65.6 inches on average.
The list comes as Worcester digs itself out of the latest winter storm to engulf Central Mass--though today's deluge can't compare with the total exactly 53 years ago to the day, when the city saw a mind-boggling 42 inches on February 5th, 1961.
Worcester places just ahead of skiing destination Provo, Utah (57.3 inches average yearly snowfall) and just behind chilly South Bend, Indiana (68 inches).
But Worcester residents take comfort. The enormous totals of the list--Rochester, NY (100.5 inches), Eerie, PA (100.8 inches) and Syracuse, NY--are still yards away.
