Redfield Possibly Breaks Snowfall Record - More Than 5 Ft. In 2 Days

Posted: Updated:

Redfield is no stranger to snow. In fact the town gets some of the largest, if not the most, amounts of snow every winter.

This week it broke an Oswego County record for most amount of snowfall in 48 hours. 

As of Wednesday morning, more than 62 inches -- that’s a little over five feet -- of snow fell in the area, according to the town's National Weather Service observer.

This beats the previous record for the county of 57 inches in Bennetts Bridge in February of 2008.

Residents and frequent visitors say this doesn’t surprise them and they’re hoping the trend continues. 

“It’s a start," Redfield resident David Ott said. "It’s going to keep on. I would like to see a gangbuster of a winter this year.”

“It’s perfect," said Pulaski resident Jeremy Kleps. "More of it. More snowmobiling, the more the merrier.

The record is unofficial, though, until it’s certified by the National Weather Service.
