    The biggest snowflake ever recorded “reportedly measured 15 inches (38 cm) across and fell on January 28, 1887 at Ft Keough, Montana,” according to this Suite101 article, which also goes on to list another giant “in Bratsk, Siberia in 1971, a flake 20 cm (8 inches) by 30 cm (12 inches)” and “snowflakes as big as saucers” reported by residents in an English town in 1969.” In general, snowflakes don’t get much bigger than an inch or so across, but flukes of weather conditions can lead to giants.
