It’s already the snowiest February on record in Seattle, and yet the snow keeps on coming – at least another 4 to 6 inches last night.
The February snowfall total at SeaTac Airport of 14.1 inches has already made this Seattle’s snowiest February in recorded history. The previous record of 13.1 inches was set in February 1949.
Typically, Seattle receives about 7 inches of snow per year, varying from little or no snow in some years to more than a foot (30 cm) in others.
The Seattle area faces another one-two punch of snowstorms into Tuesday.
