Snowiest February in six years
Back to back to back storms are bringing snow accumulations in Anchorage to the highest they've been in years during the month of February.
At the end of January, Anchorage had only seen 22.2" of snow for the entire season. That was about 2 and 1/2 feet less than last year and more than two feet below normal.
Then February began. On average, Anchorage picks up 10 to 11" of snow in the month of February. This year, we've seen more than twice that.
We've had four different storm systems deliver over 3" each, with the latest dropping 6-12" across town.
Anchorage officially picked up 7.6" at the National Weather Service office near Kincaid Park between Sunday night and Tuesday morning. That brings the Anchorage total up to 25.3" for the month which is the most snow to fall during the month of February since 2012. This is now the sixth snowiest February on record. (Records go back to 1954).
We could still see another snow shower moving through before the month is done and additional storms are already lining up for March.
