Breaks record for the entire month set 56 years ago.
The latest snowfall of about 9 inches put Mankato over the amount needed to break the city’s unofficial February record of 26.5 inches set in 1962.
Depending on which unofficial measurements you follow, this area has received between 28 to 36.5 inches of snow this month. Either way is a record-breaker, no matter what the exact amount is.
And the numberskeep rising. More snow (1 to 3 inches) will arrive tonight, according to the National Weather Service.
I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but the article didn’t mention that this was a record snowfall for the month until the 25th paragraph.
