BOSTON CBS) — Boston eclipsed 100 inches of snow in a season for just the second time in recorded history Wednesday morning.
Overnight snow showers brought the season total to 101.8 inches. That’s less than 6 inches shy of the all-time record of 107.6 inches set in the winter of 1995-96.
Boston has smashed several snowfall records, including snowiest February and snowiest all-time month, as one snowstorm after another pummeled New England.
It’s also been one of the coldest months ever, breaking the record in Boston for most sub-freezing days ever seen in February.
No major snowstorms are forecast in the near future, but meteorologists are predicting the cold weather will extend into March.
