Our Process and Methodology
First, a professional meteorologist determines where and when any wintry precipitation occurred by analyzing recorded observations from surface observing stations, Doppler radar imagery and a network of over 1,000 web cams (among other tools).
Next, our meteorologist gathers storm-total snowfall data from a wide array of sources including National Weather Service cooperative observers and storm spotters, observing networks run by colleges and universities, road and highway department personnel, private weather observers, media, on-line forums, as well as our own staff meteorologists and interns.
Once all the data is collected, our meteorologist follows a detailed process to manually analyze the snowfall observations for spatial and temporal consistency, ensuring any errant or biased observations are removed from the dataset.
Finally, our meteorologist assigns a representative storm-total snowfall amount to each of your locations on a city / ZIP-code level, using the snowfall data they quality controlled along with their knowledge of the region (e.g., local topography).
