5 occurrences in over 200 years.

2 of them in the last decade.

And a relatively near-miss from a 3rd out of 6 that brings Greenland a 3rd (end-of-melt-season this time) large build in as many months as it begins this build season well above baseline.

"So while not unheard of, it is still incredibly rare for a hurricane to produce snow–particularly in early–September!
And while Larry will just miss out on producing “snowicane” conditions in the United States, after tracking northeast across the Atlantic Ocean, it does look set to dump historic volumes of summer snow along coastal Greenland."

“Snowicane” Larry Forecast to Dump Five+ Feet of Summer Snow on Greenland

"On Oct. 9, 1804, a snow hurricane struck Eastern New England, the first time in recorded history a tropical storm produced snowfall.
The storm devastated shipping, froze potatoes, destroyed orchards, crushed houses, killed dozens of people, leveled timber lots, smashed wharves and took the steeple off the Old North Church in Boston.

Not until 1841 would another tropical storm produce snow, and then not again until Hurricane Ginny struck in 1963. And then in 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck, another rare snow hurricane.

Less than a year ago, Hurricane Zeta produced snow in October.
Several inches were reported from New Jersey to Massachusetts.
