The Snowiest States

The three states in the U.S. that receive, on average, the highest annual snowfall are all in the Northeastern United States, along the East Coast. They are New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. The states with the 4th, 5th, and 6th highest average annual snowfall are scattered throughout the United States, in Alaska, Wyoming, and Michigan. 

The lowest annual average snowfall within the United States is 0.00 inches, as recorded in Hawaii. However, it snows annually in every other state, including Florida, although snowfall in Florida is rare and usually limited to the northern region of the state. 

By region, the Northeastern and Great Lakes regions of the United States receive the highest annual snowfall by far, with the Northeastern U.S. exceeding the total amount of snowfall, during winter, around the Great Lakes.
