1968 was a record-setting year in Atlanta. That year the city reported seven snow days.
Keep in mind, snow days are counted when there’s at least 0.1 inch of frozen precipitation. With an average annual snowfall only reaching 1.9 inches, it’s safe to say the city doesn’t frequently experience extreme winter weather.
But this past December was an exception to the rule as record snowfall hit the Atlanta area – where some saw more than six inches of snow.
