Pittsburgh Weather: Did You Really See More Snow When You Were A Kid?

Kids in the 1960s did see more snow.

That was the snowiest decade since 1900, with 541.1 inches of snowfall over that 10-year stretch.

One thing you will notice on this graph, though, is that 2010-19 was the second snowiest decade.

It lagged behind the snowiest decade by almost 50 inches, but that really isn’t much over the span of a decade.

If you were a kid in the 1960s, KDKA meteorologist Ray Petelin agrees with you that there was more snow “back then.”

Everyone else has seen more snow over the last 10 years.
