What is the greatest 24 hour snowfall in Washington, DC?

Answer: The January 27-28, 1922 storm dumped 21 inches of snow in DC in 24 hours and had a storm total of 28 inches. It is known as the "Knickerbocker Storm" because the heavy snow caused the collapse of the Knickerbocker theater during a performance. One hundred people died inside.
