According to the NWS:

... Greatest all-time calendar day snow on record set at Dallas Fort Worth...

... Record daily maximum snowfall for February 11th set at Dallas Fort Worth...

... Greatest all-time 24-hour snowfall total set at Dallas Fort Worth...

... Record 24-hour snow for February set at Dallas Fort Worth... Dallas Fort Worth Airport recorded 11.2 inches of snow for February 11... 2010. This breaks the greatest calendar day snow on record. The old record was 7.8 inches set on January 15... 1964 and January 14... 1917.

Obviously... .this shatters the record daily maximum snowfall for February 11th... of 1.4 inches which was previously set in 1988.

The greatest all-time 24 hour snowfall record was also broken from 4 am Thursday to 4 am Friday. The new record is 12.5 inches. The old record was 12.1 inches set January 15 through January 16... 1964.

This also breaks the record 24-hour snowfall for February which was 7.5 inches... set on February 17... 1978 and February 25... 1924

That's a lot of snow for us!
