Cleveland breaks into the top 10 snowiest winters ever

CLEVELAND - The snow continues to accumulate across northern Ohio this season, making it officially one for the record books.

A storm system moved through the area Tuesday and early Wednesday in Cleveland bringing enough snow to blast the area into the top ten snowiest winters on record with 79.8 inches so far this season.

The National Weather Service says we have surpassed the winter of 1983-84 which previously held the honor of the 10th snowiest winter on record with 79.4 inches.

While Spring has yet to take hold for any longer than a day or two, the seasonal snow total is more than 16 inches above what we normally see in a typical year according to WKYC Chief Meteorologist Betsy Kling.

These totals could continue to climb heading into April before Old Man Winter finally gives up.

Here is a look at the top 10 snowiest winters in Cleveland:

  1. 2004-2005: 117.8 inches
  2. 1995-1996: 101.1 inches
