BOSTON (AP) — Boston finally has its snow record.

With 2.9 inches Sunday, Logan International Airport hit 108.6 inches for the season, topping a record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts.

“Superbowls, World Series’, Stanley Cups, and snowfall records,” Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted. “We are truly a title city. There will be no parade.”

Sunday’s snow came after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February. The worst previous single month was January 2005 when 43.3 inches fell.

The season snowfall record is measured from July 1 through June 30. Records go back to 1872.
