  • A Snow Emergency Has Been Declared In Erie, PA, After A Christmas Storm Shatters Several Weather Records

The Weather Channel reported that Erie International Airport recorded an eye-popping 34 inches of snow on Monday - the previous Christmas record, from 2002, was 8.1 inches.

Erie, Pennsylvania still fell short of the national records.

Still, while it was a white Christmas in some parts of the US, so far snowfall in the Midwest has not been especially large for this time of year.

On Christmas Day, a stationary, lake-effect snow band off Lake Erie dumped almost three feet of snow on Erie, Pa., more than four times the previous Christmas record and 14 inches more than the city's all-time record, which has stood for more than 60 years.

State police and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation are also urging motorists to avoid travel, citing poor visibility and deteriorating conditions. The previous record of 44 inches in Morgantown had stood since March 1958. And in nearby Lake County, Ohio, speeds were reduced to 30 miles per hour on parts of Interstate 90.
