The climate in January is generally the coldest of the year at an average of 20.7 degrees fahrenheit compared to an average temperature of 84.6 degrees fahrenheit in the summer months.

The greatest snowfall season came in 1995/1996 when 72 inches dropped in a 6 month period from November to April with more than 30 inches dropping on January 7th alone. We'll share some photos of that incredible 2 days that lancaster pa was virtually closed to all business. That marked the most snow that ever fell in one day in Lancaster PA history since records were kept in 1926. A similar event took place only 6 years ago in 2003 when 24 inches fell on February 17th, 2003.  That major snowstorm brought  63.2 inches to Lancaster PA. Source x

We will be posting part 2 tonight which is stunning to say the least as we had a very rare moment this morning where snow, which fell overnight, virtualy remained where it landed as there was little to no wind.
