Mar. 16, 2015
BOSTON (AP) — In a story March 15 about Boston's seasonal snowfall record, The Associated Press erroneously reported the previous record, set in 1995-96. It was 107.6 inches, not 107.9 inches.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record with 108.6 inches
Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record with 108.6 inches, beating 1995-96
BOSTON (AP) — Boston's made history by having the snowiest, and probably most miserable, season since 1872.
The official measurement of 108.6 inches at Logan International Airport Sunday night topped a season record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts.
"Superbowls, World Series', Stanley Cups, and snowfall records," Mayor Martin J. Walsh tweeted. "We are truly a title city. There will be no parade."
The final 2.9 inches came after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February.
The worst previous single month was January 2005 when 43.3 inches fell.
This official winter snowfall, measured from December through February this year, was 99.4 inches. That was the snowiest for the winter period, beating 91.5 inches in 1993-94.
The season snowfall record is measured from July 1 through June 30.
