The official snowfall in Manhattan for the month of February ended up being the fourth highest in the history of keeping records. Climatologist Mary Knapp, who spoke with KMAN early this month after the nearly foot of snow we received then, says the total for this February was 18.6 inches.. The February with the most snowfall was in 1900 with 24.8 inches. Second place was 1901 with 20.8 inches, and 2004 just edged our total this year with 18.8 inches.
Knapp says in looking toward the weekend more snow is expected but that will be in March. She mentions we could possibly set a new record cold high temperature on Monday, with the current record of 20 degrees set in 1910. The forecast high for Monday is only 13 degrees.
