Yes, you are reading correct, Jackson received 65 years record breaking snowfall today. It is so far the heaviest snowfall measured on today’s date in Jackson. The record was set 65 years ago in 1948.

Around 4 inches or more of snow is forecast in some parts of the Jackson today. If it occurs, it would make another record of top 10 list of heaviest snowfalls on a single day in Jackson's history.

However the heaviest snowfalls in Jackson’s history was set more than a century ago in 1904, when 11.7 inches of snow blanketed the Capitol City.
