Boston Logan International Airport breaks snow recordDate: March 2, 2015 | Category:
According to The Weather Channel, Boston's Logan International Airport received 64.8 inches of snow in February, topping the previous record for most snow in a month from January 2005 at 43.3 inches.
The average snowfall for the entire season is 43.5 inches. According to the Chicago Tribune, Boston's 102 inches of snow this winter may increase to beat the current record snowfall of 107.6 inches, which was set in 1995-1996. Between 4 and 6 inches of the frozen precipitation are expected to add to the total on Monday.
National Weather Service meteorologist William Babcock told the Tribune that there is plenty of time left to surpass the record as it is only the beginning of March.
Travelers in the Boston area are asked to check with airlines to be informed about potential flight cancelations and delays. City plows are on duty to clear the roadways, and Logan International Airport parking will be carefully monitored for slippery conditions.
Mondays snowfall is expected to be heavy and wet, and with temperatures hovering around freezing into Wednesday morning, there is a potential for slippery roadways. Drive with caution and try to stay on maintained roadways that have been salted.
