You don't often think about show in Louisiana, but over the last couple of years, Jack Frost has made sure to pull up in The Boot. Especially in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas.

Looking back just 20 years, the state of Louisiana has marked storm after storm that were "unprecedented". In 2004, the state experienced a Christmas Eve snowstorm that brought snow to New Orleans for the first time in 50 years. Snow returned to the Big Easy in 2008, when wet flakes stretched across large sections of the state who were not accustomed to accumulation. This included 8 inches of snow in Amite, 6 inches in Opelousas, and 6 inches in Covington.

Through late 2014 and early 2015, a "Polar Vortex" brought snowfall to parts of Louisiana. Including Shreveport and Bossier. It wasn't enough to cause catastrophe in Northwest Louisiana, but it was enough for a snowball fight.

2017 brought a December winter storm that dropped snow for hours. Accumulations of more than 6 inches were recorded across the state. In February of 2018, another burst of winter hit Shreveport, dropping almost 4 inches of snow in a single day, as temperatures dropped to zero. More freezing temps and light snow came around in early 2020 to the Shreveport and Bossier areas.

The winter blast that came for Shreveport in 2021 didn't just burry the city in a blanket of snow, but it caused multiple municipal failures throughout the city. As many Shreveport and Bossier residents named it, Snowmageddon, brought snow, ice, and sub-freezing temperatures to the region.

The storm and freezing conditions lasted for an entire week, and the impacts of it lasted for even longer. It brought almost 10 inches of snow, and layered roads with ice and sleet.

Between all of these instances, and the historical records before that, which city between Shreveport and Bossier can traditionally expect more snow? You can see the answer here, along with other cities and what they can expect in an average year...

10 Snowiest Cities in Louisiana

It may not snow much each year in Louisiana, but we do get some occasionally. Which cities and towns get the most though? We answer with statistics from Saturday Night Science and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). (The list below is only towns/cities with at least a population of 5,000 people.)
