Congratulations, Erie! You've officially seen your snowiest winter on record. And there's more - potentially a lot more - on the way. Thanks to the big winter storm moving across much of the East, Erie, Pennsylvania picked up more than three inches of snow on Wednesday, putting the seasonal total up to 152.1". The old record is 149.1 of snow, set back in the winter of 2000-01, is now history. Not only did Erie set its record, it's going to add to it in the next few days. A series of storms is set to deliver another push of accumulating snow on Friday, with snow showers adding to the crazy snow totals both on Thursday and Saturday. Look for another 4-8" of snow through the rest of the week on top of what has already fallen. We've mentioned how Erie's late December snow storm smashed virtually every snow record in the books. A total of around five feet of snow (60"), or almost half of their seasonal snow total so far, can be blamed on this historic three-day event. Erie saw over 120" of snow in December alone, making it the city's snowiest month on record. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest on this. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Chris Bianchi
