However, during the last 10 years here in Chester County we have experienced 2 snowfalls that have exceeded the 20" mark - February 9-10, 2010 with 26.8" February 16-17, 2003 at 21.5". Snowstorms of 6" or more should be expected at least twice each winter.This area averages significantly (12" to 16") more snow then areas on the Atlantic Coastal Plain such as Philadelphia; New York City; Long Island, New Jersey and Delaware.One of the great examples of the climate difference between here and the coastal plain at Philadelphia was the February 23, 1987 storm that resulted in 23.5" of snow here in Chester County - yet only accumulated to 6.8" at the Philadelphia International Airport.Cloudiness persists to a much greater degree in the winter due to the increased frequency of cold fronts and coastal low pressure systems ("Noreasters").Prevailing winds are from the west- northwest averaging 10 to 12 mph.The all time record high was 107 set back on August 7, 1918.
100 degree readings are quite rare as indicated by the fact that such a reading was not observed at all from 1989 to 1999.

It is important to note that a 100 degree day has never been recorded above 650 ft in Chester County.
