Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record!

As of March 15, 2015 at 7:30 PM (EST), Boston has broken the 1995-1996 historical record for most snowfall in one season! Here’s a look at how the probability of breaking this particular record has changed over the last several weeks:

The methodology used to determine the values plotted on this chart is described at length here.

Now, just because we’ve broken the record doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen our last snow of the season… If history is any indication, my calculations suggest that we’ll probably see another 5-6 inches before spring has truly sprung!
