This winter may be Anchorage’s least snowy on record

The National Winter Service says this past winter was unofficially the least snowy on record for Anchorage.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports that although the NWS continues to record snowfall through June 30, it does not expect to see any more measureable snowfall this season.

The NWS says it is “pretty confident” in its prediction that this year will be the city’s least snowy.

The agency recorded only 25.1 inches of snow during the 2014-2015 winter season, beating the previous low-snowfall record of 30.4 inches in 1957-1958.

Only a few years ago, in 2011-2012, Anchorage saw the heaviest snowfall on record when 134.5 inches were recorded.

NWS says the seasonal average is 74.5 inches of snow.
