Meteorological Winter officially ends tonight as February ends. This winter’s 51.2 inches makes this the third snowiest! What is important to look at is the string of recent years making it into the top-ten. Great news for snow lovers as the late 1990s and early 2000s gave us quite an unbelievable snow-drought! -ES
p.s. The records for an entire winter season (July through June) have the 1978/1979 season receiving 74.5 inches and the 2007/2008 season seeing 72.9 inches. According to the NWS, the least amount of snow to fall in a complete season was in 1906/1907 with only 2.8 inches falling!
