It’s Official: This Winter Was Boston’s Snowiest of All-Time!


First, it was the New England Patriots. Now, Boston has another title to add to its impressive collection to start 2015.

It’s official: the winter of 2014-15 was the snowiest in the city’s 142-year recorded meteorological history. With an additional 2.9″ with a quick burst of snow on Sunday evening, Logan Airport (where Boston’s formal records are kept) officially eclipsed the 107.6″ threshold, the number attached to the previously snowiest winter of all-time (1995-96). Now, 2014-15 is all alone atop the snow charts at 108.6″.

And the snow might not be done yet.

Computer models are taking a coastal low off the coast of southern New England on Friday and into early Saturday, and depending on how close the low tracks to the coast, it could bring yet another bout of significant snowfall to southeast New England. Again, the track is uncertain, but be sure to check back in with for all the latest as the event draws closer.

You can call it a farewell present from Mother Nature – for Boston’s snowiest winter of all-time. Congratulations, Boston!
