Trappe ‘Winner’ In Saturday Snowfall Totals

MOUNT HOLLY NJ – Among 12 different sampling locations across western Montgomery, eastern Berks, and northern Chester counties, Trappe was the winner – so to speak – in snowfall totals compiled Saturday (March 12, 2022) by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly NJ. Its website reported the western Montgomery County borough received 5.2 inches of the white stuff.

Placing second was the first of two measuring points in New Hanover Township, receiving 4.8 inches; and third in Gilbertsville, 4.0 inches.

The also-rans in snow accumulation were:

  • The first of two sites in Phoenixville, 3.8 inches;
  • The second New Hanover site, 3.5;
  • The first of two sites in King of Prussia, 3.5;
  • East Coventry Township, 3.5;
  • The second King of Prussia site, 3.2;
  • Boyertown, 3.0;
  • The second Phoenixville site, 2.5;
  • Morgantown, 1.5; and
  • West Chester, 1.

Measurements were submitted by a variety of trained spotters, cooperative observers, automated devices, and members of the public, the weather service said. Their observations were “collected from a variety of sources with varying equipment and exposures,” it added.
