Winter 2013 Snow Totals

Snow totals

SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB) – March has been an active month when it comes to winter storms, but snow totals in Springfield have not been all that impressive.

The city has now picked up about 6 inches of snow so far in March, including the snow that has fallen today.

For the entire season, Springfield has received, unofficially, 46 inches of snow, with more than half of that occurring during the February blizzard. That’s about five inches off of the seasonal average, which is between 50 to 55 inches of accumulation.

By comparison, Springfield only received only 23 inches of snow last season, with more than half of the season’s snowfall coming during the October snowstorm.

In the hilltowns, it’s a different story. This year, many of them have received about 75 to 80 inches of snow, keeps those towns on-pace for their seasonal averages.

And if you’re taking measurements at Bradley International Airport, 51″ is on the books. (Not including today’s snowfall)
