Anchorage has surpassed a 57 year old record for snowfall in one season. The old record of 132.6 inches occurred in 1954-1955. But with a total of 133.6 inches as of (4 pm Saturday), the winter of 2011-2012 is now the snowiest winter on record in Anchorage.
The city lacked 2.5" going into Easter weekend. Snow began falling Friday morning with 0.8" accumulating. A couple additional inches fell overnight Friday and throughout the day Saturday.

The season got off to a slow start. The first snow didn't arrive until the 30th of October. But each month from November to February experienced above-normal snowfall. November saw the greatest snowfall with 32.4", close to three-times the average for the month.

By March, Anchorage was on pace to shatter the record, but a slightly below normal month somewhat dimmed the chances of breaking the 1954-55 record. Going into April, 3.3" were still needed to become the snowiest year ever recorded.

Records have been kept at or very near the current location near the TedStevensInternationalAirport since 1953.

………well Ken not so much………

(Just in case you missed it before)
