According to the Weather Wizards over at NOAA, Yakimanians were treated to approximately 8 inches of snow that began falling yesterday morning and has since since subsided before noon today.

While eight inches is a pretty heaping helping for one sitting, it does not come near the all-time record for most snowfall in a 24 hour period.

That distinction belongs to a day in December of 1964 when a whopping 14 inches fell in just a single day! It does, however, come awfully close to tying the record for the month of February when 8.2" fell back in 1994.
November of '84 also set a one-day record with 11.2" and the runner-up occured in January of 1963 when 13.6 was the white stuff tally.
