2010 – 2011 Total Inches Of Snow (Boston & vicinity)
(Scroll to bottom for latest winter snowfall updates, 2012 – 2013)
As you would expect, the snow total depends on the location, and in typical northeast fashion there are swaths of snow depth boundaries throughout New England.
The official snow total for Boston is measured at Logan Airport. Since it is on the ocean, this measurement does not typically accurately represent what the rest of the region received for snowfall. Instead of simply relying on one set of measurements from Boston’s Logan Airport, I looked at the average snow total inches within the area inside of Rt 128 for each significant storm.

Third Snowiest January in Boston
According to the ‘official’ statistics, this January-2011 is the 3rd snowiest January on record, while the 2nd place prize came only 6 years ago, and the jackpot was hit only 15 years ago! That’s quite interesting given the fact that snowfall totals have been being measured for quite some time.
2005, 43 inches
1996, 40 inches
2011, 38 inches
As the winter progresses, the upcoming week temperatures will remain below average, in the 20′s, while more snow is expected Tuesday and Wednesday. The Wednesday storm is shaping up to bring heavy snow north and west of Boston with a mix within the city.
