  • Over the weekend, from February 8 to 10, Seattle was hit with one of the worst snowstorms in the city’s history.
  • Seattle, which normally gets an average of 0.7 inches of snow each February, received six to 10 inches in a single weekend.
  • Needless to say, the city’s residents are using the rare snowfall to play in the snow, sled, and bask in their winter wonderland.

The city of Seattle is being rocked by heavy snowfall, having almost reached its yearly average amount of snow in a single day the weekend of February 9 — and another storm is on its way.

While not as cold as say „Chiberia,“ the temperatures in Seattle rarely dip this low, resulting in an unprecedented amount of snow.
