Washington, Baltimore Set New Snowfall Records

For related posts, see:
As noted earlier, Washington Dulles easily broke its daily snowfall record for Feb. 5. The liquid precipitation for the day of 0.99" also more than doubled the old record of 0.46" set in 1998.

The 8.7" of snow at Washington National broke the more substantial record of 7.5" set in 1892. The season's total so far of 36" puts 2009-10 within striking distance of surpassing the number 10 seasonal total of 37.7" in 1979. The month-to-date amount of 12", however, is still over 5" short of breaking into the top 10 February list.

The 7.8" at BWI breaks the old daily record of 6.4" in 1899.
