Boston buried by snow

(CNN)-As the snow falls, so do records for extreme weather.

In Boston on Monday — with 62.5 inches of snowfall since January 15 — the record for most snow in a 30-day period has already been broken. The previous record was set in 1978.

With the third storm in as many weeks, how long will it be before the new record will be surpassed?

“I know that it’s frustrating right now, particularly with the amount of snow, and it’s frustrating to all of us,” said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. “This is snow like we’ve never seen before in the past.”

Boston is in the cross hairs again, and winter storm warnings are in place across large portions of the Northeast, including Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

The National Weather Service forecasts 12 to 16 inches of snow by the time the storm ends Tuesday. For upstate New York, the numbers are 8 to 14 inches.

After the storm, cold air will funnel in, followed by yet another snow event for Thursday and Friday.
