The only reason DC has higher average snowfall is because of the occasional Nor-easter. 22" of snow every 5 years brings the average up significantly.

NYC seems to have a similar pattern... sometimes getting about 10 inches a year, but then gets slammed with an even bigger noreaster dump. Is that the case?

I would have to take Denver..Abundant sunshine and chinook winds that melt the snow quickly..Low humidity and thinner air along with the sunshine make temps feel warmer than they actually are..

Portland, Louisville and Dc all have one thing in common and that is humidity and more winter precip than Denver..

Denver does not experience cloudy days for an extended period of time and does not have the winter precipitation of those other 3 cities..

Portland's weather is influenced by the pacific which means consistent moisture and cloudy days throughout the winter months...Louisville is influenced by the Gulf of Mexico and DC by the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico..

Denver hands down!!
