mid-Feb sdpt map

Snowfall in February so far has been hit-or-miss.

Six airport climate sites had their all-time snowiest start to February, with Boston, MA, seeing a whopping 58.5 inches (nearly 5 feet!) of snow. In two weeks, Boston has had more snow than they normally get in an entire snow season (Oct-May) and Worcester, MA, has had more snow than they normally get during winter (Dec-Feb). In fact, much of New England, New York, and the northern half of Pennsylvania saw well above normal snowfall.
