Do you think Ohio gets the most snow at least east of the Mississippi River because it aways seems that way by watching The Weather Channel often? Even if snow is moving north of you yall from say Chicago to Detroit that the tail end will move through Ohio and the same for when it snows in the south it you all will still get snow on the northern end of the storm. Plus the storms that move through Ohio from the central part of the US. Is this assessment right generally speaking?

NY is the probably the snowiest state. Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and Utica are all in the top 6 for most snowfall in the US. Cleveland is 9th. Next would be Canton at 28th.

I guess it depends on what part of the state your in. Southern Ohio is not as cold and is more likely to get rain. Anyways, I would research to see where Ohio is in terms of annual snowfall. IMO states like Alaska, New England states, and some other areas get a lot more.

Snow is snow. There are plenty of snowier spots in the eastern U.S. Aside from the snow belt in Geauga, Ashtabula and Lake counties, Ohio gets relatively little snow.

Not all snow is created equal.

In Montgomery Co, a 4-6" snow will make your back sore real quick.
In Bernalillo Co, that same snow will be dry and dusty and burn off ( sublimate ) by noon.

The water content in OH snow is probably 2-3x NM snow.

I also noticed from the map that the land area in AK that is light purple or higher is probably less than what's in the UP of MI and New England ( or at least, pretty close, it's hard to guess ).

Fun fact: If you overlay AK with the 48 states , the farthest islands in the Aleutian chain around Los Angeles, you could position Nome near International Falls and Juneau somewhere in Florida.

That map shows the UP gets the most snow in the US.

Not necessarily Ohio, but I've felt this way about Eastern Ohio (excluding the NE) for sure. I went to school in Athens and they always got significantly less snow than the Dayton-Cincinnati area despite being pretty similar in latitude.

The NWS ALWAYS over-predicted storms there. I don't believe they ever got one right. 4-6 inches, meant 2...maybe 3. Over six...lucky to get 4. I was there for four years and though we had plenty of predictions for 4+ inches I think it only happened once. I got used to taking no one seriously when it came to forecasting snowstorms. Being a snow lover it was kind of frustrating.
