Boston has seen its seventh snowiest February on record so far in 2013.
|February Snow Rankings||Year|
|1.) 41.3 inches||1969|
|2.) 39.9 inches||2003|
|3.) 36.2 inches||1994|
|4.) 35.3 inches||1893|
|5.) 32.9 inches||1934|
|6.) 32.5 inches||1920|
|7.) 32.0 inches||2013|
Altogether, 32 inches of snow has been measured this month. Winter Storm Nemo accounted for a little more than two feet of this total.
With just an inch of additional snow, Boston would crack the top five on February snow rankings list. A little more than four inches of snow would vault Boston into the top three.
To claim a tie for the top spot on list, Boston would need 9.3 inches of snow. The snowiest February on record was in 1969, when 41.3 inches of snow piled up.
This is quite a turnaround from last season. The total just this month in Boston (32 inches) more than triples the snow total from all of last season (9.3 inches). Less than an inch of snow was measured in Boston last February.
