October Snowfall Records

While this October has been quite warm, snow is always a possibility in October in Albany. That said, snow in October is usually quite light, with the norm being more of an occasional dusting in the morning rather then any serious accumulation. Back in 1987 with the freak early autumn storm, we got 6.5 inches of snow at the Albany International Airport with some outlaying areas getting as much as two feet. Even last year, we got 1.7 inches of snow in Albany on October 27th. Measurable snowfall is more common during the end of the month, although still quite rare.

While this will shock no one, Albany was mostly free of snow this winter, except for two blockbuster storms towards the end of winter, which melted away relatively quickly. Outlaying areas tended to hold on their snow a lot longer then at the Albany International Airport.
