NYC Central Park breaks all time snowfall record

The National Weather Service office in Upton, NY is now reporting that as of 4:00pm, New York City's Central Park has received 26.9" of snow. This represents the largest single storm total ever recorded at Central Park. The previous record of 26.4" was set during December 26-27, 1947. It is worth noting that snow was measured cumulatively in 1947 whereas now it is measured and cleared every 6 hours. This means that in reality more snow likely fell in 1947. However, snow measurements are so imprecise that real records are virtually impossible.
