A look at March storm history

Created: 03/12/2014 5:07 AM WHEC.com

March has had its share of big snow storms. Of the top 10 worst storms in history, four happened in March.

The 1984 leap day storm lasted more than five days bringing more than 30 inches of snow. On March 3, 1991, we experienced the “Ice Storm”. It was the costliest natural disaster in New York State history to date.

Several years later, March 1999 packed quite the punch. There were two blizzards in the beginning of March dropping 42-inches of snow.

Today is the anniversary of the "Storm of the Century" in 1993. There was 23 inches of snow, thunder and lighting.

Now it is March 2014 and a blizzard warning is in effect.
