How much snowfall does Los Alamos collect each year? Three feet? Four feet?
It may surprise you to learn that we get five feet – 58.7 inches to be exact – on average.
Five feet per year, on average, measured from 1971 through 2000, for the year.
This December brought 29 inches of snowfall to Los Alamos, which is half the average for the entire season already!
Expect the other half to be spread out over the remainder of the winter, given the return of mild La Niña conditions which bodes for warmer and dryer months ahead.
