The 10 Snowiest Cities In Texas For 2021


We looked at the data to see which cities in Texas have the most snow every year.

Editor’s Note: We updated this article for 2021. This is our first time ranking the snowiest cities in Texas.

Sure, a Saturday morning right after a foot of fluffy snow is the best thing ever. But that same amount of snow on Tuesday in Texas can make a commute last forever. So just imagine it's the dead of winter, and the time of year when the ground is frozen, the air is bone chilling, and there are piles of dirty, nasty ice encrusted snow all over the place.

This is about the time of year when you're just about ready for spring -- especially in Borger, the snowiest place in Texas.

So, put on your parkas, snow boots and your gloves and let's go outside to see which Texas cities get dumped on the most every year. After analyzing all the cities in Texas with a decent amount of people in them, we came up with this list as the 10 snowiest cities in Lone Star State.
