More than 20 Deaths Feared in Italian Hotel Buried by Avalanche

Dr. Jeff Masters, January 20, 2017

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

An unusually frigid and snowy winter across southern Europe delivered its most dramatic blow yet on Wednesday evening, when a four-star resort in central Italy was buried in an avalanche. Six survivors were found on Friday, but more than 20 other people inside the hotel may have perished. The avalanche was fueled by extreme snowfall across the mountains of central Italy, part of a weeks-long siege of cold and snow from Europe into far northern Africa. Meanwhile, another weekend of wild weather is in store for much of California as well as the Gulf Coast states.

Weather Historian, Weather Underground

Winter has descended with a vengeance for much of the nation this December. Although heavy snow has fallen in many areas no all-time snow records have yet been set so far with the exception of Binghamton, New York where a new single-storm snowfall record of 27.6” occurred on November 19-22. However, the city’s 24-hour snowfall record of 23.0” on February 2-3, 1961 was not matched. Here is a brief summary of the greatest 24-hour snowfall records set in each state and at a selection of 70 or so major sites in the U.S.
