This February is officially the snowiest on record in Providence, according to the National Weather Service. A light snowfall on Tuesday night pushed the monthly total to 31.6 inches, breaking the city record set in 1962.
Meteorologist Alan Dunham says that’s even more than the famed February blizzard of '78. “1978 is in third place with a total of 28.6 inches, for the month of February," said Dunham.
And forecasters predict the new record could get just a bit higher before the month is out. An inch or less of snow could fall this afternoon.
