122-year-old snow record may be broken: Just short of 3 feet

MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J. (AP) — This week’s winter storm appears to have broken a 122-year-old record for the most snow in a New Jersey community from one storm. The National Weather Service made a preliminary report Tuesday that Mount Arlington in the northern part of the state got 35.5 inches of snow in the three-day storm. It could take months to confirm the total and the new record. But officials note there’s no reason to doubt the veracity of the total reported by a trained weather observer. If confirmed, it would top the record of 34 inches that fell during a blizzard in Cape May County in 1899.
