...HISTORIC WINTER STORM OF FEBRUARY 25, 2015 COMPREHENSIVE
UPDATED SNOWFALL REPORTS...

ALL OF US HERE AT NWS BIRMINGHAM WOULD LIKE TO THANK OUR
COOPERATIVE WEATHER OBSERVERS, COCORAHS OBSERVERS, AND
SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THESE SNOWFALL REPORTS.
REPORTS SENT TO US ARE NOT ONLY ESSENTIAL DURING THE ACTUAL EVENT,
BUT ALSO FOR DOCUMENTATION ON THE HISTORICAL RECORD. THE FEBRUARY
25, 2015 WINTER STORM WILL BE ONE OF THE MOST DOCUMENTED WINTER
EVENTS IN CENTRAL ALABAMA HISTORY DUE TO THE NUMBER OF REPORTS THAT
WE RECEIVED.

THE REPORTS BELOW ARE THE MOST UP TO DATE TOTALS THAT WE COULD
OBTAIN. HOWEVER, SOME OF THE REPORTS OCCURRED BEFORE THE SNOWFALL
ACTUALLY ENDED IN SOME LOCATIONS AND AMOUNTS MAY HAVE BEEN HIGHER.
WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO SUBMIT THEIR STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL AMOUNTS
TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FEEDS @NWSBIRMINGHAM ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK.
